Daily Sketch 04/10/12 ‘Hide & Seek’

I spent an hour early today sitting on my patio with my sketch book. I thought it might be quiet and restful and give me the opportunity to meditate before drawing. It turns out that we have so many birds that sing joyously and without restraint that I went straight to drawing.

After watching our dog, Daisy, I realized she was bird-watching! She stood in the middle of the yard, very still, and scanned our yard for movement. She watches the birds, and they watch her. It seems to be her entertainment, a bit like watching TV for humans.

I was lucky enough to catch sight of two quail this morning, and I think Daisy did too. Unfortunately for her, they didn’t want to stay around to play!

I’ve entitled the following sketch ‘Hide & Seek.’

About Wendy Fallon

By day I am a technical writer, and by night and on weekends I am an artist and creative writer. Having lived in Phoenix, AZ with my husband Tim for 23 years, I find the urban wilderness in which we lived to be endlessly fascinating. Our home was tucked up against South Mountain, the largest city park in the U.S. The canal slashing across the base of the mountain provides inspiration for paintings, drawings, and sitings of wild coyotes, skittering fluffs of newborn quail, lizards and constant change.
