Day 20 Little by little birds build their nest

I'm feeling a little discouraged today.  Sometimes you see the enormity of something before you (or the futility) and it's hard to keep going on, no?

I try to pull myself out of that feeling and remember my favorite French saying of all time:   

Petit à petit, l'oiseau fait son nid.
(Little by little birds build their nest.)
(or...Every little bit helps.)

Hope this creation helps any of you out, my readers.

  1. I love this Jill. Maybe it is because I have been watching the hummer nest in the front yard. Maybe just because I love birds, and nests like so many others. Or it could be, the timely reminder. And knowing that I am not alone in feeling... whatever it is I am feeling.
    Hang in there, grab some colors, and keep making your wonderful marks!

    1. Thank you, Sheila, for your beautiful words. We'll keep making art together... (-:
