  • Oh, my! ART!

I still do not have glasses to compensate for the new lens in my left eye, so I do everything with my left eye closed.

I always multi-task while watching on TV a New England Patriots football game. Painted this sparrow in watercolor for one of my Cape Cod friends (a former 6th grade student who is now a grandfather!). Not my best work, but it's hard to concentrate when Tom Brady is on the field.



A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

Good job with only one good eye. Go Patriots, unless they are playing the Texans.   :fight::2funny:

Mea, your energy level seems to be very high inspite of impaired eyesight and distraction going on! 😮. The sparrow has come out well!

Well done using one eye only  :clap: :clap: :clap: Just check the beak again. Sparrows are seed-eaters and have a broad stubby beak without a hook. Just straighten the lower part of the beak  O0
