Draw what you see, Donna Bickley
Draw something I see - by Donna Bickley
From my studio window I see a small crabapple tree with reddish brown, fermented apples leftover over from the season - the tree up against a simple wooden fence.
There has been a freeze and now a warmish time which brought a thaw thus aiding in the fermentation and softening of the apples' interior.
\. I drew the tree from my window view and the robins and other critters were added from my memory and imagination.
I made the tree smaller than reality and the robins bigger to convey the vision in my head of the weight of flocks of a dozen or more robins who came to visit this tree in a 3 day event in which they gobbled fermented apples, were intoxicated and staggered about hilariously. The melting snow , one of my cat characters and a coupla local mouse voyeurs complete the picture you are seeing.
