Illustration Friday #36 "Urban"

"Wren Neighbors"

Outside my studio live three families of Caroline Wrens. Every evening these adorable tiny birds argue about who going to get to bed first. They yammer and yell at each other in their LOUDEST voices for at least 15 minutes. Then all at once, all is silent as each home swings on it's peg. Not a peep comes from the houses until daybreak when they start their complaining about who's getting out first!
Soon they'll have babies to feed, bringing non stop noise for the summer.
They are my entertainment and alarm clock. I adore my little wrens!


  1. Gorgeous! Love my neighbors birds too, make me happy (they are not Caroline Wrens, though) :)

  2. Aw, how brilliant to have all that going on outside your window! I love your illustration.. the little birds have such character!

  3. You may adore your wrens, but I adore the illustration you did of them! Love the black that frames the art and the fresh patterning of tree leaves. And what a clever girl you are to come up with wren houses for URBAN!! Pure genius.

  4. Unique black and white style! love it♥
