Journey


They've arrived! It's always a special moment when we see the first house martins. And unbelievable to think they've travelled from Africa on those tiny wings.
I'm really on the last lap for Illustration Friday this week.

What a beautiful illustration, Nicky. Yes, indeed it is amazing to realize how far those birds travel, across oceans!!! My goodness! terrific animals.

Love the blues and all that movement! I feel like I am soaring with them, dipping and diving. I did not know they migrate all the way from Africa. My goodness!

Nicky, I *love* this--the energy, flow, and that woodblockish texture! This piece makes me happy.
