Feast or Famine... a birds eye view

Mini narratives go through my head as i paint. Something like this... the bird is thinking,how can i save these berries,without them how will i survive the winter? I must remember my favorite bush,and tell my children so they can eat too.

Then it occurred to me that i could use some of my paintings as a writing prompt for my afternoon students? I think it sounds like fun,all kinds of good things could happen:)
Just added bird with yellow, gives it some lift I think:)

Electric Confusion~July Madness

This is actually one painting 11x4. I had difficulty getting it all in one shot,so it is represented in three pictures.

My husband commented on the garden today,which he rarely does, saying,"do you think it's getting a little over grown out there?"

I must garden like I paint!:)
