Flying Party

I’m up early listening to the birdies sing. They sound full of extra-joy this morning after several days of steady rain. (I often wonder where the birds perch in heavy rain, don’t you?) I enjoy the cozy feeling rainy days bring with them. Extra gratitude for home and hearth; extra awe at what strong powerful curtains of water those tiny raindrops can make when they flow together … extra pleasure at cool rain on your skin that won’t be denied even with the best raincoat! Extra time inside for catching up on projects and savoring art.

I made these artist trading card collages several weeks ago for the ARTchix Studio Bird Swap where delightful bits of work by fellow artists wing their way to you while you fly some art fun back to them. I also just happily found out I won some “feathers” and other fab art embellishments designed by artist Lenna Andrews, as part of ARTchix’s blog giveaway. You can see the gorgeous art bits here that will soon be enjoyed in my messy thrilling little art nest!

A dove just landed outside the picture window I’m facing as I type this; we are graced with lots of them in our garden. This morning’s soft sun is a pleasant change for the doves and for me and everything looks even more vibrantly island-green after the long soaking rain. I love the rain. And the flying parties after the stormy weather. And the ART, rain or shine!
