Well it's not Kooboosh, but Roy did a great job painting this bird. Who is Kooboosh? Kooboosh is a yellow canary my mother had always, it didn't matter how many canaries we had they were all named Kooboosh. I have Kooboosh's bird stand in my garden and have thought of what I could hang there other than a canary, (not sure my cat would like a canary in the house, or maybe I'm sure he would)so yesterday on my antiquing trek looking for china to smash for my mosaic bird bath I found this very well painted wind chime. I know how much work goes into these "little" projects and Roy's family donated it to the local Thrift store. I also know how much these wind chimes are to buy before you spend too many hours painting them. So I'm sure Roy won't mind if I enjoy his labors at such a bargain price, $2. the girl at the cash even suggested I wait till 50%off day. Imagine Roy's heirlooms at half price. We often speak of this in our painting groups, that we toil and try to paint lovely things so someday our children or grandchildren will say "Oh my mom/gran painted this, she was an artist, but we fully expect they will be found at the local thrift shop at bargain prices and purchased by someone who knows the work involved. I don't sell my paintings for this same reason, how much would you charge?
So this is my contribution to Mellow Yellow Monday, (we'll call Roy's bird Kooboosh) Kooboosh has a little yellow on his head and he's lovely.
I'm going to Hat Tip Roy 1992. photo taken of the windchime I own.
