Opening Bell Bird

15 Dec


On any given Sunday, you will find a group of locals getting their Latte’s at the Opening Bell cafe at South Side on Lamar, in Dallas. On this chilli Sunday morning, a Latte was the perfect start to the day. One of the nice things about the Opening Bell, besides the nightly live music from local bands and artists, and besides the fun, eclectic interior, is this chalkboard table. So while waiting on my Soy Vanilla Latte, I was inspired to doodle. Now for some odd reason, I found myself doodling a bird. Imagine that.

    I was looking for something – stamping, I think – and stumbled across one of your birds, which really intrigued me, and so I’ve been going through your archives. Some of the birds were exquisite. Some really made me smile. And all, of course, were impressive in how you ‘saw’ art in everyday objects. Thank you for sharing. And I do hope that I’ll pick up a children’s book one day, recognize the artist’s name and say, Oh, I saw his blog when he did this bird-a-day…
