Sunday afternoon. Everyone home and tucked in, dreaming of Sunday dinner.

This past summer we had the fun of watching barn swallows build and fill their nests and tend to their sweet little babies until one day they were all finally gone, no longer returning at night for a tasty meal provided by mom and dad.

The area we live in is quite arid and there aren't many trees. Except for the little oasis where our home is located. This said, the birds really love it and we get endless entertainment watching them. I'm starting to yearn for Spring and Summer, green and growing and the chaotic bird activity.

In the meantime, I entertain myself making art depicting my buddies, the birds.

The colours are so soothing. Very pretty.

Love it! I think I'm going to paint a wall in my bedroom that great blue. I think it is soothing as Andrea said.
