Autumn ~ A Creative Tuesday Drawing

please click on picture to enlarge
Autumn is the theme at Creative Tuesdays this week! My drawing depicts pigeons enjoying a bag of seed while they sit on a park bench under a Ginko tree.
I can almost hear the crunch of the golden leaves! If you'd like to join us, this theme is due Tuesday the 25th. Click HERE to join or see other works of art!

  11. Cool autumn picture. We are finally having a cool day. It actually feels like an autumn day here with no sun shining and not using the air conditioner. Keeping fingers crossed that we get more days like this.

    I like the bench in the pic and was thinking that the leaves are up to the bench and nice that someone put seeds out for the birds.

    God bless.

    PS...The new theme for Theme Thursday is up.

  12. Love that bench...the color and texture looks so real. I would love to just sit there, but I'm afraid those birds would just fly away and then I would feel bad.

  13. All back to globland
    With a golden leaf at your stand
    Or make that 68 leaves I think
    That's how many I counted before I had to blink
    Sad I went and counted I know
    See you sent me into withdraw with two days of not rhyming at your show..haha
    Oh those lazy humans too
    They just leave the seed there and don't feed the pigeons directly at their zoo
    What are we to do
    Another great drawing by you

  16. Pat ~ leave it to you to count the leaves
    just like an accountant, I believe!
    Sounds like you missed me, too
    That is so dear of you!

  17. Awww, I poured a bag of birdseed on our bench this afternoon as I prepared to pour it into our big air-tight container. Sadly, no feathered friends joined me at the bench.

    I love Ginko trees.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oops, that should say, "I SET a bag of birdseed on our bench today..."

    ReplyDelete
  19. Christian ~ oh good...setting it is better than pouring it. :) I love ginkos, too!

  20. I love that quote and your drawing..I would love to be on that bench. Fall is just so peaceful, it's amazing. :D

  29. What kind of pigeons are those, and what area are they native to? I've never seen that variety in New England.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Silver ~ well, it's really a combination of an Australian pigeon and a Diamond Dove..with some artistic liberties included. I guess you could say they are fictional. ha. :)

  42. Oh, I missed so many of your lovely interesting posts. And I missed celebrating the boys' birthday with you. I'm so glad they looked forward to it.
    As to this drawing, ginkos have such pretty leaves - how clever of you to capture this scene. I think your doves are prettier than ours too.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Fabulous, in every way. As I was clicking on your work, I was wondering to myself what type of bird would be there. Pigeons...so wonderful. You never disappoint.
