Little Bird





Be quiet...

Be Glorious.

Artwork - 2.5 x 3.5 inches, colored pencil and pen.
I drew this last night after going through my sketchbook from the past year. I saw this wee bird and decided to redraw it. In the sketchbook it was drawn left handed, which I repeated for this drawing - colored with my right which smoothed out the lines. Along with the drawing was some left handed writing with the last two sentences being: "Be quiet! Be Glorious." Susan asked why I draw with my left hand. This POST might explain. Also, I think it is good for my brain.


  1. hi jenny - there's a tiny magnificence about the details of this world that comes together when we stop and look and listen and respond - as you have with this quiet little bird. lovely. steven

  2. Beautiful.
    I recalled a tropical bird like Crown Victoria Pigeon.

  3. This is beautiful. I love it when you find art that I want to redraw. Thanks for sharing about the left hand technique.

  4. I want to write a children's book and have you illustrate it. Seriously.
