BIRD IN A HURRY

Hello everybody.

One of my favourite challenges is Moo-Mania which is asking for art on the theme "Automobiles, cars and vehicles".

Sparkles, my bird friend, is in a hurry, racing through Spooky forest.
I wonder where he is going?  Any ideas?





Real Life here is pretty manic just now, and I can empathise with a bird in a hurry, so I am also linking to Elke's challenge at "Art Journal Journey" to make art on the theme "Landscapes of the Soul".

  3. Sparkles is so cute in his magical vehicle! He does seem to be in a hurry, mind you I think I may be as well if I was travelling through that spooky forest ....lol 😁. Or maybe he's going to pick you out some new socks with birdies on...lol πŸ˜‰. Thanks for capturing my imagination, I have missed you here in blog-land, glad your back and enjoy your week! J 😊

  5. That looks very nice. I always love your special design style. It would be perfect for an illustration for an children's book. I love your choice of colors too. I hope some quieter times will come for you next.
    Dear Greetings

  7. What an absolutely adorable little bird. I can understand trying to catch yourself coming and going.. Your darling Sparkles is doing a great job getting wherever it is headed. I also like that the rabbits are silently waiting for Sparkles to pass by. This is a fantasy come true, dear Sheila.

  8. This is a wonderful,sweet painting. I think the bird is hurrying home for his dinner and trying to get there before his big brother who is having to fly.

  9. This is sweet, and that forest doesn't look spooky at all, it looks inviting! Maybe I'm a ghost... :D

  12. This page really made me smile Sheila. The whole idea of a bird in hurry really made me think, but I guess they must have times they want to get out of the way of things quickly too. But the bird in the wagon car is so much FUN! Glad you're back with some of your fun art. Hugs Erika

  13. She's off to the fun-fair, to the magic castle, flying trapeze, and hall of ghosts of course !! She'll pal up with her mate Douglas the Fairy. Super combination of paint & computer as always. Love it, Awesome !!

  14. I hope like crazy that Sparkles is hurrying to my house to help me with all this sorting purging and donating! I could use the help and he looks like he’d be a great little helper. His means of transportation is so delightful and looks quite efficient. The spooky forest does appear to be a bit daunting but I have a feeling that it might not be so if one were to get to know it. The bunnies don’t look frightened to be there. The one tree is quite inviting and there are pretty flowers growing. I love those spooky trees!

  15. Your art is always so unique, so pleasant and funny. I love the spooky forrest, here are all leaves already flown away...
    I suppose, your little bird is on the way to find a dry and warm place for the coming winter... Ulrike

  20. Love this story board of birds' happy world! You made fantastic visualization with charming details, Sheila.
    My suggestion is that the father bird is urgently flying to gather the mother and youngster for travel some warmer place before it comes winter....
    Have a great weekend my friend!
    P.S. My eyes are now ok and I need to use eyeglasses only to reading and computer work. I haven't yet get these eyeglasses ready.

  21. I love your sense of imagination and how you get my imagination going, too, through your adorable art! Since yesterday was Friday the 13th, I think Sparkles (and his rabbit and bird friends are going to join him) is going to a "Haunted Hay Ride" when he gets through the spooky woods!!!!

  22. Sparkles looks a little disappointed about his vehicle, I guess he wants to go faster through this Spooky forest, huh! The watching rabbits are wondering why the bird does not fly, because then Sparkles would be faster. The flying bird on the right is coming in a hurry to tell that circumstance to Sparkles.
    What a fabulous scenery, I love it!

  23. What a super scene Sheila! Sparkles looks a little scared, but also happy to go by car. Love the trees!
    So creative as usual!

  25. Your colourful birdies are ace! - you make me want to go and get some colours out, I usually stick with seaside colours (blues, greys, sand) - but this looks like so much fun!
