"Uh oh, you see me..." this little brown bird with the long beak in this photograph seems to say. One day I spotted this bird with another one below the roses at Descanso Gardens. I believe they are called California Thrashers. Although I've visited Descanso Gardens many times, I have only spotted them the one time, I think they are very good at hiding indeed... I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
Here is a rough sketch that I did of a big eye elf fairy. Her hair is in two pigtails and I think she has a joyous and friendly quality. I'm not sure if I'll paint her or not, but I did enjoy sketching her. She is face 11 for the 29 faces challenge in February. For 29 Faces, the challenge is to share 29 faces in the month of February.
