Lone Robin

Robins are a sign of spring, no matter where you live. The first robins arrived here several weeks ago, and started scouting out likely nesting spots as soon as they’d had a good meal. Then they set up housekeeping and they started singing to mark their territory. Early mornings around here are just plain noisy now with robins, and juncos, and warblers, and sparrows and chickadees, and the occasional pigeon and crow as well. I take my morning coffee out on the front step just to sit and listen.  The fellow in this painting wasn’t alone for long… his lady friend was in the next tree over – and soon he was gone, too!

  1. Beautiful! This one really speaks/sings of the impending spring. I can hear this painting!
    I am impressed with your ‘self-discipline’, remaining faithful to the intention of an image a day (at least). I love that you are exploring different media, styles and subject matter! …Perhaps when I put away my day job I’ll be able to aspire to this, too.
    You are an inspiration!

    • Hi Craig:
      Thanks for the encouragement, I think it’s always an exchange between the person making the image and the person viewing it. Thanks for checking in on the blog, keep coming back for more Labrador Landscapes!
