Artist's Description

Pen and ink sketch with W&N watercolour in my Moleskine 200gsm Nature Journal
.
Cape Glossy Starling (Lamprotornis nitens) at a bird bath in my garden (Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa)
.
What is joy?
It is a bird
That we all want to catch.
It is the same bird
That we all love to see flying

Spring is definitely in the air here in South Africa! The Starlings, who haven’t been around for some time, were visiting the bird bath today. They provide such a beautiful, bright iridescent blue splash in the garden, it’s difficult to miss them!
