The Bowerbird

#DoodlewashSeptember2022 prompt: Metallic.

Did you know the Satin Bowerbird builds a nest-like ‘bower’ to attract mates, decorating it with all sorts of shiny objects, preferably blue to accentuate its own metallic blue color? Like the lyrebird, they are remarkable in their ability to reproduce the sound of machines, voices and other bird calls.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
