“WAKE UP! (the Car Alarm Bird)”, day 6 of 30 Birds (LOST in MICHIGAN. Anyone know where?)

“WAKE UP! (The Car Alarm Bird)”

There once was a delightful little bird who loved to hang out right outside our bedroom window, and SCREAM HIS HEAD OFF at about 5:00 every morning. This is what I think he looked like. My wife called him “the Car Alarm Bird.” I give you: “WAKE UP!” I hope an American Kestrel ate him.

I’m doing an original work [almost] every day this month. 30 of ‘em in 31 days. The theme for December is birds. All kinds of birds.

An original piece every day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new one. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.

Any birds you’d like to see painted? Let me know! Recent suggestions include an American Kestrel, “the bird”, a siren (half-woman/half-bird mythical beast) and the legendary Phoenix.

Yesterday’s bird: “Stork Delivering to Holiday Party in Sleet Storm”

    This little terror really did sound like a car alarm — twee-EEET — and as much as we loved having a bird bath in our backyard, having this guy scream us awake in the early dawn hours did make me question the decision to have the bird bath right outside our bedroom window.

  2. Ha! I love this guy. Rob and I knew his brother back in Whitmore Lake.

  3. Unadulterated words, some unadulterated words man. Made my day.
