Happiness Is…. (WIN A FREE BOOK MONDAY)

Big or small, short or tall, young or old, rich or poor, feathered or featherless, there is so much happiness to be found in this world. And since Monday is the most stressful day of the week for many featherless beings (on account of something called “work”), Pearl figures it is also the perfect day … Continue reading Happiness Is….

Day 361: Extreme Pumpkin Art

There is art....and then there is good art. And then, of course, there is one-of-a-kind art - the kind of art usually only beings with feathers can create. When the artistic medium itself is also highly unusual, you just can't even predict how much the finished masterpiece will go for. And once you add in the … Continue reading Day 361: Extreme Pumpkin Art

Day 351: Pumpkin Patch

In the fall, and typically just before the big candy distribution festival, featherless folks in possession of pumpkins like to use them to raise funds (presumably to afford all that candy). They call an event like this a "pumpkin patch." Of course, during these events, it is every pumpkin for itself. For this reason, the … Continue reading Day 351: Pumpkin Patch

Day 328: Working with Wicker

For talented artists (with feathers), the medium you choose to work with will define you perhaps as much as your creations themselves. For example, say your medium of choice is wicker. There are very few artists who work with wicker. Wicker is also notoriously difficult to work with. So you can expect any work you produce … Continue reading Day 328: Working with Wicker

Day 254: Romancing the Waffle

In today's fast-paced flock life, the ancient art of "romancing" has been all but lost. Everyone is always in such a hurry! Yet, for the token few who still remember and adhere to the courtly ways of gentlemen past, the rewards can be rich indeed. Not to mention tasty. Author: Shannon Cutts Co-Author: Pearl Cutts p.s. FREEBIE … Continue reading Day 254: Romancing the Waffle

Day 210: The Fruit Basket

As far back as ancient Egyptian times, skilled artists have enjoyed reproducing images of food with paint on canvas. Within this tradition, the "fruit basket" has its own enduring appeal - perhaps because fruit is a particularly patient subject that is willing to sit still for hours and allow itself to be painted. Yet, however … Continue reading Day 210: The Fruit Basket

Day 177: Found Round Bread

In the art world, artists sometimes used things abandoned by others - aka "found objects" - to make their art. In the culinary world, dishes unwisely abandoned by diners may quickly become repurposed into "found dinners" by other diners. Take an abandoned round slice of freshly baked baguette, for instance. Author: Shannon Cutts Co-Author: Pearl Cutts p.s. FREEBIE ALERT! Read the introduction … Continue reading Day 177: Found Round Bread

Day 110: Wicker Art

Being a great artist means making a daily commitment to practice your craft. On many days, you may make tiny tweaks, work on a new technique, or brainstorm new ideas. On other days, you may enjoy the triumph of finishing up a masterpiece. Of course, these are the days when you want to have the … Continue reading Day 110: Wicker Art

Day 76: Waffle Art

Many of the greatest artists have selected one preferred medium. Some prefer paint on canvas. Others sculpt with marble or shape with clay. Still others - but only the edgiest of modern innovators - opt for the "waffle." This most difficult of creative mediums requires a skill level few possess. Firm and crispy on the outside, … Continue reading Day 76: Waffle Art

Day 329: Artistry Under Wraps

When you are a talented artist (with feathers), you know imitators are always keen to nab your original designs and claim them for their very own. For this reason, when you are working on an innovative new art project, you want to keep it hidden from prying eyes until you are absolutely sure you are … Continue reading Day 329: Artistry Under Wraps

Day 271: The Art of Great Conversation

When making great conversation, it helps if you are very cute (which typically means you have feathers). Reason being, regardless of species, beings just tend to pay more attention to your words when there is eye candy to look at too. But there is also an art to conversation itself. For instance, you want to … Continue reading Day 271: The Art of Great Conversation

What a Bird and a Gourd Have in Common

In addition to bird jewelry, bird watching, and, well, birds, I also love bird art. Because I have spent the greater portion of my life to date recovering from an eating disorder (along with a host of attendant hangers-on like depression and anxiety) sometimes it takes me awhile before I really "get it" about how … Continue reading What a Bird and a Gourd Have in Common
