Day 79. Fallen Leaf Bird

Today’s bird is a found bird. Looking down at the ground I saw this little guy and thought he needed to join my blog. My wife who is an incredible painter, thought this would make a great painting. I agree. It has the simple line quality of a Picasso drawing and elegant proportions of a Giacometti sculpture. Ironic that something so small grabbed my attention and made me smile. Enjoy.

Day 32. Leaf Bird

Have you ever stepped on Art? Last night as I was walking to my car after class, I stepped on this gorgeous, large leaf. It was so large and beautiful that it stopped me in my tracks. If I’ve never mentioned this before, let me just say, leaves are one of my favorite things in the world. I love the unique beauty of a leaf. And so I stood there a moment just staring. At the leaf. And then I thought, this handsome leaf deserves an after-life. A second life as a work of art. With just a snip here and a snip there, todays’ Bird-A-Day art is fresh off the grounds of the TCU campus. Enjoy.
