She was wondering what colour fabric she should use for her dining table chairs. I send her a link to my dining table tutorial. She was interested in featuring the homes of artists and so I uploaded a couple of pics of my house. Last week she placed the pics on her blog and I woke up to orders of wonderful people!!!

It is called a peek inside: indiehome tours with Myrte from MirthQuake WHOWHWHOOOOOO!!
She says: "Some of you have expressed interest in seeing more home decor and design here on Indie Fixx and when you all speak, I listen. Today, I am kicking off a new feature called A Peek Inside: indie home tours. Periodically, I will share homes of indie makers and sellers spotlighting indie design and diy decor as well as homes that have been decorated using vintage goods. My first tour is of the home of Myrte de Zeeuw. Myrte is an talented illustrator who has a healthy obsession for aviary painting. You can find her work for sale in her Etsy Shop and you can also see some of her artwork displayed in her home in the pics below."

I watched a couple of cool videos on Youtube with this bird, I can especially recommend this one. I love how the bird moves. I portrayed a dead tree with the bird to add a little bit of desert to the image. This is the last bird of the assignment a customer gave me. She wanted to have her and her husband's 3 favourite birds illustrated by me for their wedding anniversary! How special and what an honour to be part of such a personal and important celebration. I met 3 amazing birds, The loggerhead strike, The Yellow-rumped Warbler and the Belted Kingfisher that I hope to encounter in their own habitat once. I look forward to it!
De Amerikaanse Klapekster
De volgende keer dat je gaat kamperen kun je het verhaal van de Klapekster vertellen bij het kampvuur. Hij staat ook wel bekend als THE BUTCHER BIRD! Hij ziet er enig uit met zijn witte buikje, en hij klinkt ook lief. Maar hij prikt zijn prooi op een doorn voordat hij ‘m op eet. Leuk verhaal voor bij de barbecue! Aan de andere kant ook wel zo netjes, wij eten toch ook met bestek?

Do not try at home what this birdie can do, eating poisonous berries that is.
He has the stomach for it, and that is quite rare. He is SO not bothered by the poison in bayberries that it allows him to stay a little longer on his home ground before migrating towards Mexico. He seems to have an appetite for spicy food, so the Mexican cuisine will do fine for winter!
