The other day at work I saved a little sparrow that flew into the studio. I have no idea what possessed it to come in there. We only have one window, and to a bird, the space can't look all that inviting. Nevertheless, he did want to check it out. A youngin' too, by the looks of it. He was a bit off-kilter and confused when he landed on the floor (as I would be too, if I were a bird). Seeing a poor critter in distress, I immediately jumped the counter and gently grabbed him so he couldn't fly into a wall or customer piece or something. After letting him go outside, I came in to help the customer at the front desk, who promptly replied, "I had no idea bird catching was in your duties here". Ha, proved her wrong, didn't I?
Anywho, I'm going fishing with my dad tomorrow and meanwhile I'm busily at work on another sea life painting--an angler fish! Oh yes, you did in fact read correctly. I'm excited to get it underway. Will post in-progress shots a bit later.
Ta-ta for now, chaps!
