Touranga Sea Birds

“Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.”
– Frank Herbert

Touranga Sea Birds – 2.5″ x 3.5″ Watercolor ATC

This little ATC went to Graham in Auckland, New Zealand.

These birds seemed fitting for a long holiday weekend.  There will be a lot of backyard fun, barbeques and swimming for most families.  I am going to Carlton Landing’s grand opening chili cookoff and then to a birthday party on Saturday.  Sunday and Monday will be for painting and studying.    I am really looking forward to some down time with the hubby, as he is still healing and getting better.  He’s having to skip the Saturday events, but we’ll have the next two days together.

I hope that whatever you’re doing, you enjoy the holiday and stay safe.  Don’t forget to say a little thank you to our brave military men and women, who risk their lives to keep us safe.  Happy Memorial Day!

About Frank Herbert

American author Frank Herbert is the author of Dune, the ecological science-fiction classic that has inspired cult-like devotion among fans. He was born in Tacoma in 1920. He lied about his age to get his first newspaper job in 1939. He was inspired to write Dune after researching an article about sand dunes in Oregon. The book took six years to write and was rejected by 23 publishers. It was a critical success for its exploration of issues of religion, politics, and survival. He died in 1986.
