Animal Wednesday - April 2013

Early this April I was out walking with friends and we came upon a huge Crawdad claw lying right beside a crawdad mound. It was such a pretty color lying there in the muck. 
Happy Animal Wednesday.
What have you been seeing this spring while you are out and about?

Yes I agree with Teri. Miss seeing your work. That said I havent done much drawing lately either. but glad to see this. not sure what a crawdad is tho. Keep thinking beach critter.

This is wonderful! I'll bet it really stood out in the muck. Glad you found it!

You are one of the few artista who cam make a Crawdad Claw look magical! (A few of the others have already commented!) What a great find...

I also love your written words..so descriptive!

As you know, we have had an earlier Spring than most of the country..I am eagerly awaiting the birth of five Cygnets...and yesterday, while *visiting* their parents...came upon two Geese who just had four Goslings! So sweet and innocent..

I am thrilled Spring is finally there with you!!!!!

Love,

Um I had to go to google to find out what this is... I am such a city gal! Happy painting and I know you love your garden as the weather gets springlike- Here it is really still Wintery.Ugh.

Hey Lisa! Great sketch and love how you write on page too! I am loving all the birds right now down here, and we saw a beautiful colorful rooster under a tree beside a restaurant we were at in Okeechobbe, Florida last weekend. Beautiful skies and clouds here this time of year. You always inspire me to try more drawing! I need to make time. You are the sweetest!

I haven't heard of Animal Wednesday - I love the idea - and the creative way you incorporated the crawdad claw. Very clever!

I love the crawdad claw sketch and the delicate colours. Your nature journals must be lovely to browse through.

What a beautiful picture of that claw! I have been walking a lot lately and saw a lot but I had to keep going so no time for pictures. I am training for a march. But I think I won't make it as my knee is injured and keeping me behind in my schedule.
Today I walked 5.8 miles. saw 1 young horse and one new born pony Mom was rolling in the grass. Saw little lambs.
Hope I will be inspired to paint something soon........
Finally we have spring here. YEAH!

I've gone hunting for crawdads while teaching a class to first graders at the local park but never have found any! When I do find one, I will make sure to pay attention to its beautiful colors. gail
