The sun came out!!! Blue skies were visible. Big fluffy white clouds too. The birds were active around the feeder. I stood outside on the veranda taking pictures of the sky and sun and the birds. I even took a video of the birds chirping. It was 5 degrees C. Downright balmy and a hint of what’s to come. I headed out to fill one of the bird feeders – the one furthest from the house – and almost flew away to Buckingham! Wow, the wind was strong.
By the time I got back to the house, less than ten minutes had passed. The sun was gone. So was the blue sky and fluffy white clouds. In it’s place was the same old dreary grey sky we’ve seen almost every day since winter began.
As I stood outside taking pictures of the sun, a redpoll landed close by and stayed, allowing me to get a few great shots. He even appeared to be posing for me.
Several times during the day I wondered what I would paint tonight. Nothing came to mind. I started looking through Instagram for inspiration, then, remembering an album I have on Pinterest of images I would like to paint one day, I had a look through and found one I wanted to try. It turned out great!
