While driving up to Portland yesterday to stock up on staples at TJ's with D we were traveling down the highway when something caught my eye.
I saw a crow flying towards a bird on the very top of a pine tree. As we approached but unable to stop I recognized the bird to be a hawk. Our exit came up immediately so D quickly found a place to park where we still had a view of the highway through a chain link fence.
This is what I saw... (notice the little tree in the middle, way in the distance, it is on the other side of the highway)
Yesterday afternoon, I noticed something very large in the sky gliding over the Kennebunk River in Kennebunkport. It was too big for a gull and many other birds and duck had flown by just before its' arrival.
Upon closer inspection, we realized it was an eagle!
The other night I found myself taking all of the mismatched sheets that I've used to cover our 30 year old couch off... I felt the couch needed another makeover... what to do.... I remembered I had some large brown sheets and two of them managed to cover the couch and with other things I've saved over the years such as pillows, pillow shams and blankets our shabby old couch now has a new look. It's not at all fancy but it gives the room a very cozy and comfy feeling! Brody loves it and looks so handsome on it!
Sometimes the simplest things can bring much happiness.
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from the pets who have touched my life, our garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more.
Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you.
