What triggers your memory from way back?

As I was painting this little bird, I kept thinking of a piece of song my dad used to sing to me in the mornings.  I haven't heard it in decades, and I can't even remember the tune!
All the same, it's a snip of a memory that makes me smile. 

Birdie with a yellow bill,
Hopped upon my window sill,
Winked a shiny eye and said,
"Aren't you ashamed, you sleepy head?"

I may have to go back and add a little more yellow into this little birdie's bill!

  1. Sometimes, your paintings make my heart skip a beat when I enlarge them and zoom in. I love this bird just as she is. :)
