Cactus Monday!

Here is a cactus with little birdies living inside. It was done with #2 pencil and colored pencils on an ATC card.

This guy was inspired by my blogger pal, STAPELIAD, when she does "quick sketches" using a micron pen. I thought I would try a "quick" sketch as well, and well...here it is! I thought he turned out fairly well. Cute litle owl.

can birds really live in cactuses? i find that so amazing. how on earth do they even build their nests, let alone get in and out daily? HCM fellow cactuteer, nice one.

Julie said...

Thanks guys! I kinda like this cute little owl! And, yes, Soulbrush...they really do live in the cactus out in western US. The bird shown in my ATC is called a Guilded Flicker, and they nest in the Saguaro Cactus!

I like the drawings. Thanks for leaving me a comment. Can you tell people I am back? For some reason I can't get on alot of websites. My computer is becoming disabled. I will still try to tell them myself. Uh computers are frustrating sometimes! Once we clean the hard drive it will be better, but untill then I can only visit you and trish.

Love the Cactus with birds in it. I have actually seen that scene in AZ.

Last winter I got to see a Saw-whet Owl too. It was great.

Happy Cactus Monday.
