One of the delights of living where I live, is that in the big old trees gathered in my front yard, many birds like to visit. There is nothing quite like starting the day with birdsong & the caroling of magpies is one of my favourites.
HOWEVER, at the moment, they are in their mating season & establishing both relationships & territory. This means that magpies can be heard at any time of day or night! With a body clock attuned to the sound of magpies signalling it as time to get up....their current tendency to chortle away in the earlier hours of the morning is really discombobulating my sleep pattern. Consequently, I am...a magpie affected zombie!
There's nothing else to do, but make magpies the subject of my weekly art project!
Although this type of design is more like what I'd do as a sample piece in preliminary work for a bigger project, I am still quite pleased with the outcome. With a brain considerably vaguer than usual, multiple interruptions & many distractions, I was just pleased to get SOMETHING done at all!!
