Arting for 365 Day 179: Robin Come Winter

Day 179 (10/24/12): Robin Come Winter

~3 x 5″ ink and watercolor on paper

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Colorado received her first real dose of snow yesterday. It was, by no means a blizzard, nor will the skis even be coming out,  but it did make me feel as though winter is knocking on our doorstep.

For some reason after seeing this weather I began to think about birds – American robins in particular. This type of robin hangs around through the winter (although perhaps not at Crested Butte altitude) and I wondered, how they were they feeling about this snow? Had the copper breasted little guys prepped their winter huts? Were they cozied up, and as excited about the prospect of some winter weather as I am? One can only hope.
