Sunday's Little Blessing - Zebra Finches

Hello Friends,

I apologize again for not having an image for you last week. To make up for it, I have two images for you today.

Recently I adopted a pair of Zebra Finches. I have wanted finches for years and these are my first pair. From their "dee-dee-DEE" beeps and tiny red feet to their hummingbird-like flight patterns, their puffy little bodies and their love of bathing, the cuteness just never ends with these two. Of course I had to attempt a drawing or two.

Here are Fred and Wilma. I named them after the Flintstones because of the leopard skin pattern under the male's wings.

I started by drawing Fred. Maybe next week I will have a drawing of Wilma.

I did a cartoon drawing, attempting to make Fred's markings look like clothes. Then I did a more serious drawing. You can use the pictures to help guide your coloring or totally go with your imagination to make your own kind of finch. If you like Fred, let me know in the comments if you would like me to draw Wilma for you next week.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you are enjoying your Sunday.

Blessing hugs,
