Animal Wednesday - A Duck for a Wet Day

I bought this wonderful book with pictures of birds and animals - the thing is huge, a real coffee table book but it was on sale at B and N for $10.00! I couldn't believe it and snatched it up. So, I'm copying some of the animals from that book, and learning alot about drawing in the meantime.

In the fall we have days of absolute beauty, with warm sunshine and gorgeous colors - where all you want to do is go to state fairs, and eat apples. Then there are the days of cold nasty rain, where all the remaining leaves come down in a sodden mess. It's one of those days today....I dread going outside and would prefer to stay inside by the fire. So I thought this duck would be good for todays Animal Wednesday.
Haw to you all, hope your day is warm and sunny!

oooh, nice duck!
We're having exquisite weather here lately. It's supposed to be Indian Summer-like at least through the weekend. We need rain though and most of my friends are looking forward to the first big downpour of the season. That's when the hunkering will begin!

My entry today is for you :) HAW!!

This is a great duck and what a bargain you got. I miss a big bookstore like B&N we have a tiny bookstore. They have nothing.
Sorry about your soggy day. Hope tomorrows better. Look forward to more birds. :))
