My brother is a big fan of Star Wars, as am I. And he recently had a baby boy. I drew a cartoon as a homemade card to send to him. What do you think of it?

I like to observe different birds that come to the feeder. During the recent Nor’easter (the 4th snowstorm of the season), birds come in large numbers to the deck in need of rest and sustenance. Bird feeders are a lifeline for winter birds. Essentially, birds need to consume nearly half their own weight per day to make it through a cold winter day.

This is my drawing of Titmouse, one of the birds that visits me. It is a small yet handsome songbird with its pointy head crest. Titmouse is a funny name. Somebody must have been tipsy when they named the bird.

As menacing people think this apex predator is, sharks are actually endangered, sad to say. They are an important key to balancing the ocean’s ecosystem.

My Tiger Shark is simply enjoying her life in the bountiful sea.

This my “green” drawing. Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I look forward to seeing the variety of songbirds, like Sparrows, on my bird feeders. It is a calming routine to look out the window. I make sure the feeder is full of seeds because birds are so important to our daily life. Birds keep the population of nuisant insects in check, contribute to the pollination of plants and flowers, and simply make us happy when they sing. My indoor cats enjoy watching them too.

Don’t forget this coming Sunday to set your clocks forward one hour :)

The Olympics is over, but my sketch drawing of winter sports continue. My drawing is an ice skater, performing a balance move. Competitive ice skaters make it look easy, but clearly it is not. Do you think I captured her grace?
