Bubble Gum

please click to enlarge
Bubble gum is the theme over at Creative Tuesdays!
I had to figure out how to get my trademark bird in the drawing! I almost wove Bazooka comics into a nest but thought maybe that wouldn't count since it didn't actually show the gum. I opted for a bubble-blowing bird and an impressed audience, too! ha. And I changed brands from Bazooka to Double Bubble. Actually, the wrapper is my favorite part! So, there you have it. :)

  5. What your ocd wouldn't let you skip one..LOL
    Always having to give it a one
    But it turned out great
    As always at your plate
    Birds can chew gum who knew
    Tiger might get a sticky mouth if he snacks on a few..haha

  6. Pat ~ that would be bad, it's true.
    Tiger with a sticky mouth and feathers, too!
    Could really be a mess
    I will confess.
    ha.
    Wonder if Tiger could blow a bubble
    maybe he wouldn't want to go to the trouble?

  10. I was wondering how your little birds would fit into this theme. It was a tough one...!

    I do love the look on the little birds face watching...wondering if it's going to POP!

    The wrapper..cute!

  39. birds with bubble gum...do the bubbles chirp when they pop?

    ReplyDelete
  40. wow, great painting, I agree this one is a challenge, I'm not able to do this weeks challenge but boy its a tricky one for sure,
    I think you did a great job, that birds going to burst that bubble, I just know it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I see two mischievous baby birds having fun exploring. Darling.

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is so cute and I love the border, it looks like a postage stamp.

    ReplyDelete
  43. It is funny how as a child I seemed to always have gum in my mouth, but nowadays chewing gum for more than 10 or 15 minutes gives me a headache. But I still like to chew bubble gum every so often while driving and to blow the bubbles. It's like being a child for just a little while.

    Oh and peanut butter is good to use to get gum out of a child's hair. Ice can also freeze it and make it easier to pick out. Our mom said if we wanted to keep our hair then we better figure out how to get it out. Oh and it is good for getting it out of carpet too.

    It would be cute to see a bird blowing a big bubble but not to see it swallow the gum.

    God bless.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh this is adorable. I can just imagine the other bird egging the blowing one on, saying "yeah, yeah, you can do it,... bigger now" and then a big splat :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
