On the second day of Christmas…


{watercolor, 2010}

My assigned day was the second day! This is what I imagine when I think of a turtle dove. Otherwise, if you google an actual turtledove its a pretty plain little bird. Nothing against the turtledove, I just like my reptilian flying creature idea!

    Very clever and well executed. I will never think about turtledoves in the same way.

    Their little wings must need to flap super fast to lift their little turtle bums of the ground.
