Election Day Hermit Thrush
So that allowed me time to do a field sketch. This is a small 5x7 inch watercolor based on it.
When we got home we turned on the television and sat more or less glued to it until after 11. By that time the election had been called for Obama, at least by a few stations.
Since I've talked for more about politics than I normally do recently I'm only going to say that we were both very pleased to see that a campaign that involved voter suppression, an extremely harmful Supreme Court decison, vast amounts of money that would have been better spent elsewhere and lies piled upon lies all based on the assumption that the voter is both stupid and easily manipulated failed. It FAILED.
I don't care what your political party. Eveyone should be happy to see the end of such a campaign and hope that we never see such a one again. This Hermit Thrush was a bit of fresh air amidst all of that.
Now there is very serious work to do in Washington. Let's hope that it finally gets done!
