Double Rainbow and Birds

So sorry everyone for not being around much in the past 3 weeks.  We have been dealing with some real crappy life issues.  The kind you think you are prepared for but let me tell you " You are never prepared".  If you have ever gone through a parents illness you will know what I am talking about.  I have been in quite a slump.  

 We did  go to the beach with Heidi, Nelly and the boys.  That was beautiful. It rained almost everyday but that doesn't matter when I can look out at that ocean. It never ceases to amaze me. I will never get tired of that view and feeling the awesomeness(I do not say that word lightly).  Sunrise on the beach and Sunsets on the Bay. We even had a double rainbow.  It was so beautiful. I have never seen one that I could see end to end. Steve and I both looked at each other and started to cry. We talked about how lucky we are and how beautiful life is. (I did see a double rainbow over Target one time, Hmmm Do you think that is where the Pot of Gold Is????)

I did manage to get some work done. 
I have started some bird paintings. Not quite finished. 
Still need to add some details

I found this Old Self Help Book that I pulled out the pages for the wings.

Still a work in progress

I did one of these before in my Circle Journal. I decided I needed to make a painting. 

Just having fun with birds

I almost think I should name them. 

Like Huey, Dewy and Louie????

Hope to see you soon. So sorry I was away so long. 

Please visit all the wonderful artists at Paint Party Friday!
