Until I met my husband, my life was pretty black and white. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining about my upbringing but things like camping, backpacking, rock climbing, cross-country drives to the Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and places in between, were all novelties. He introduced color that I didn’t know was missing. And I am so glad that we shared that with our kids.
So today as we continue to paint with different hues, reading quietly, watching favorite shows on our individual iPads, go on walks and watch the birds in our neighborhood and in our backyard, I thought it fitting to celebrate his Father’s Day with a painted bunting watercolor.
We have been trying to attract these birds to our backyard from the waterway nearby. So far the seed we have put out has been untried.
In the meantime, my husband has framed the original watercolor and hung it in our family room with the hope that we will see the real deal in our backyard before they migrate.
I think the bunting will make a lovely notecard. What do you think?
