Feathered Friends...

Feathered Friends..., watercolor on paper
An older watercolor of Piu Piu... I saw birds and other animals all over Paris in the windows...

A sweet little birdie holding onto a bit of lace...

...a bit of lace undies. Finally a naughty picture at Paris Breakfasts!

This proud bird resides in the copper pot department at E. Dehillerin - the best Parisien professional kitchen supply house at 20, rue Coquillière, 75001.

A lucky duck at Dihillerin, this one in the window. Don't you love the jaunty red chef's neckerchief he's sporting..?

This wonderful sign on rue Montorgueil...

These two Magpies stopped me in my tracks at this left bank shop window! I did see a pair of giant black Ravens early one morning on Boulevard St. Germain. They were on the street, not in any shop window.

Looking for a Paris breakfast croissant I guess...

Little does that duck know that he is going to end up in one of those terrine dishes. Lovely stuff as always. Di

Oh, jaunty duck of hope
Did you not note...
Those terrines hold your fate,
At a future date...

I love those little birds holding the lace--they remind me of the old cartoon of Cinderella when I was a kid, and the birds helped when she was getting all decked out for her big night with the prince!

Intriguing contrast between background and foreground on the bird watercolor. Wonderful color in your pet. Amazing modeling on the tea pot...
From just Duckie..

Naughty Finches
Unlucky ducks
Foraging Ravens
And Magpies plucked
A cockerel crows of a copper pot.
Me thinks it's Piu Piu
Who's got the best spot!

Birds, my dear birds, you taught us humans how to fly
To sleep on the wings, Is now what we have to try
All our dreams, that take us far and wide
Are made of wings, held on your side

You gave us the urge, and some of the clues
Then came the surge, took away the blues
On the wooden raft, we set for the sail
You are the one, we love to hail
