Road Runner Reprised
Road Runner / oil on canvas / 5x7 / unframed / $68 including shipping
I SAW TWO
road runners the other day, in my dad's neighborhood in Tubac, AZ. They truly are ridiculous - running when they could fly!
Apparently, there are reasons for this. According to
, their wings are short, compared to the size of their bodies, and they can only stay airborne for a few seconds at a time. They fly only to escape predators, or when they're descending steep slopes. They can run as fast as 20 mph!
I AM HEADING
home to Virginia next week, a little earlier than planned. My dog-sitter is not crazy about my dogs, and that makes me sad and anxious. I am lonely - I am lonely all the time now - but I am particularly lonely for my doggies. And my friends, and my house and studio.
So the Bird A Day project will probably be on hiatus as I make my way across the country. Or it might not. Either way, it will pick up again when I hit the Eastern Shore.
