(Views: 213 as of 10-13-12) a digital painting in PSCS5 using masking layers & filters including DAP & Fractalius

Just outside my window,
There was a rustling sound.
A little chitter chatter
As rain fell to the ground.

It was these 2 little sparrows
Sitting upon my fence.
They seemed a bit a’flutter,
As if they were upset.

I watched them from my window
Wondering what might be wrong
As I listened to them
I heard their winter’s song.

The 2 little sparrows
Sitting upon my fence
Flew off into the cloudy skies
And I haven’t seen them since. . .

    I love how you made your window and the tree frame each bird, as well the snow you added creating a story to them.

  • Thank you so much. . . It started out as just the birds, then I just kept adding little things & I thought it would be as if I was looking at them through a window… Thank you for stopping by.
