Thank you, Kim!  I think I will reply to comments like you have and do several in one. I fear I may miss somebody like I am doing now so if I do please forgive.

My kids  had to learn a Poem in school and I think it fits just perfect.

It's from Christian Morgenstern, called "the three sparrows"

Its about the three sparrows sitting belly to belly. The sparrow to the right is called Erich  and the sparrow to the left  called Franz.

In the middle naughty little Hans.

They're staying warm while snow is falling.

And naughty little Hans has the warmest place!

Hope everybody  who was hit by the cold front has a Erich and a Franz;)

Colored pencil drawing

C&C always welcome

Claudia - love the story; Erich, Hans, and Franz are perfect - in your cp drwg, even if not in the story. Like how you treated their surroundings. Yes

Lovely little story Claudia.  I have been watching the birds all day at the feeders.  I seen several that looked like the three you painted.  I just wish they were fox or field sparrows instead of the English sparrow (No offense Sarah).  Lovely picture with good winter colors.

How does Moses make tea??  Hebrews it.

Joyce, your bird of paradise painting is just beautiful and you did an excellent job with it. The crop works well. You nailed it! 

Jan,  I love the way you cropped this and the way you showed that fat fluffy tummies. Well done. I have never downloaded  from my i

pad I didn't know there was an app for downloading. I always use my mainframe.

Claudia, the poem is perfect for this painting. Love the fluffy bodies. Yes we all need snuggle buddies this time of the year! 

Jen C & C's always welcome

Hello dear artist friends,

I've been finally able to upload my works here, at the forum, Hurray!

Lots of interesting and lovely works, everybody been very busy, wonderful!

Here it is my humble contribution, a new painting called ''Sunny Night''and inspired by the lovely theme of January challenge and a gorgeous sunset we've had in Colorado, and an older one called ''Passion'' and inspired by a photo of my cousin who is a former professional skater.

 Warmest regards and Happy painting to you all

Cristina
