This is a white-winged dove --one of the hundreds that seem to call my back yard home -- and they're distinctive in that they have a blue eye ring. Kind of pretty really.

Anyway, it gave rise to one of those silly questions you don't really need to know the answer to, namely, who does their makeup? Can't you just picture one bird with the eye shadow brush in its beak trying to help another with her eye shadow? No? Oh, well...... The obvious answer is that Mother Nature does their makeup, but I'm certain that eye ring serves a purpose for something. I just don't know what.

For this page, I used 2 of Katie's Blendable Templates and mixed parts and layers of each. I never was a fan of templates, but now Katie has made coloring pages for those of us who just can't seem to color inside the lines, and I think I'm hooked.
