A challenge: thirty robins!

So many people do art challenges. I love to see them. And so I wanted a challenge for myself. But it had to be one that was fun and doable. I love robins, I see and hear them on a daily base when I walk with my dog. So I challenged myself to make 30 robins. The colors should match but that was easy because I used more or less the natural colors of a robin. And I want them in a square. I have to say these parameters arose during the making. Most challenges are 30 … in 30 days but I was afraid to put the pressure to hard so I decided to take as long as I need.

But I did 30 robins in 30 days, it was fun and I really enjoyed it! Also because my followers on Instagram and my friends on FaceBook where enthusiastic. And I love applause and support!

You can see an election robin which I made on election day in the Netherlands. I did two singing robins, I tried a Mondriaan robin. One is a photo I made last year, I edited the photo on Photoshop. You can find my thumb print, a garden robin and a embroidered robin. I have to confess I did that one with a marker on paper but is was so much fun to make the pattern for which I lent a photo from the internet. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

I even sold this Robin to a woman whose name is Robin, isn’t that cool! I love that name for a woman.

And a very dear friend made a mug with the robins for me! I love it!

These are my favourite robins, do you have a favourite?

Thank you for being here and have a nice day!

    • Thank you Petra. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I enjoy your stories, especially the one about mister Spring.

  1. I love them all, each for a different reason, but I think the one with the little red boots is my favorite! Too fun!

  2. I adore this series!! I love one you picked, the one with the feather drawings ( top pick) and I LOVED the robin in calligraphy – so imaginative making a picture from the letters. And I loved #29, wings raised line drawing. So many gorgeous and fun robins!! Thank you for lifting our hearts in March ❤️❤️❤️
