Day 12 - Fairy Wrens - Blogtoberfest

Brrrrrrrr.....there was a very cold and blustery wind all day!!
It certainly cooled things down.

Would you believe I'm battling yet another migraine this evening?
This afternoon, I was putting together a desk 
from a flat-pack for Aaron's room when, 
in a split second, pain shot through my head 
and it's been a battle since.

That's three migraines I've had in three consecutive days
Hopefully, tomorrow will be migraine-free.

I didn't want to flake out on the 75 sketch challenge 
so I sketched regardless of my head pain.
Yep, I'm a real

#12 of 75 pen/ink sketches

Another of my top three favourite birds.

Fairy wrens!

Pencil-free sketch in A6 pocket Moleskine sketchbook
using ZIG Millennium and Micron pens.

And now, I'm off to take more migraine pills
and lie down.

I hope your day was better than mine.

~ Love, light and peace ~


  1. This is my first visit to your blog, Serena, I love love love your work. Totally gorgeous!

  2. Lovely sketch! ...looks absolutely gorgeous


  3. Your birds are fantastic. I mentioned in one of my posts this week that that is a weak area for me, the drawing of birds, and something that I deem a challenge to work on and perfect in my own way. Hope you get to feeling better! Glad you soldiered on through the migraine and made your art anyway.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. So sorry to hear about all the migraines!! I've had a sinus headache for a week, but it's more annoying and not the terrible sharp pain of a migraine. Sending healing energy!! Love your fairy wrens. I don't think I've ever seen them before. I do think you are brave to be doing the sketches despite the migraines!! You are a hero!! :):) Love and hugs!! Take care and spoil yourself silly!
