Knock, Knock


pen and ink, watercolor in Strathmore w/c Visual Journal 5.5 X 8″

I was painting in my studio and heard a knock knock at my door.  Figured it was a delivery guy who needed a signature.  Come in!  I said.  Silence, and then another knock knock knock.  I looked out the window. No one there.  Opened the door and surprised this fellow who was perched on the birdhouse outside my door.  He flew instantly to the plum tree and I got a good look him.  Such a handsome visitor!  I hope he knocks again.
