Killdeer - Pastel Pencil

Killdeer – Pastel Pencil

Next week will be treatment #6 – halfway! Only 3 more months to go!!!!  This resting week, I had a migraine Tuesday, but am feeling much better today. No nausea! Whoooo Hooooo! Back to the first New Normal, now maybe I can start having a good week in between treatments. The ole hair is thinning again, but it is taking longer this time, maybe some of it will stay. The Astivan tan is definitely back, so it looks like I have been to the tanning booth. Maybe a few field trips this week as I feel better! Art store, here I come!!!

Three of my pastel pencils are down to the nub, but still was able to work on the Killdeer. Think it is about time to step away from the drawing. Well, maybe a few more adjustments……I love killdeer, especially the fake broken wing act the parents do to draw you away from the little ones. And speaking of little ones, killdeer just have to be one of the cutest of the baby birds, they are just little fluff balls on long legs, with the greatest expressions. Now how am I going to figure out what to work on next. I have been going through my 30,000 reference photos and it is just hard to choose. However, I haven’t done a parrot in a while, maybe I can bribe the guys to pose for me. Hopefully they have forgotten about the wages issue and will work for peanuts again. Stay tuned……….

  1. Very Nice! Such rich colours. I think I’ve seen Ruffed Grouse do the same with the broken wing act.

  2. Bert, I love the updates and connecting with your unquenchable spirit. I’d love for you to take a few days to photograph the birds (and the squirrels) from the balcony – with our without the Red Bush blossoms that are still hanging on. Love you, Bert!
    Signed, Bert ❤

    • Thanks Bertimus, I am so glad to see you blogging regularly! Love it! As soon as I kick this cancer, we are taking a little trip to Texas to see Mom and Dad, if you are not too far out of the way, we might be able to jog over! Hugs!

  3. Lovely to hear you are half way. Tell everyone you have been to the Caribbean to explain your tan. Love killdeer, haven’t seen one in quite awhile and have never seen a baby before. Sooo cute.
