Wind Up Parrot

Every Day Matters Challenge #6 - Draw a well loved object or childhood toy. 6" x 8" drawing paper, pencil sketch, watercolor paint, Pigma Pen. Sept. 2, 1012.
"My husband Charlie collects reproduction tin wind up toys. They all move somehow when you wind the key, jump, roll over, bicycle, twirl or roll and flip. I've gotten quiet a few of them for his birthday and Christmas, and we have found a few at garage sales, and antique/thrift stores. We love looking at the antique ones in the stores, but they are very expensive. Every year at Christmas we get them all out and wind them up, and let them go on the kitchen linoleum floor. Toys are to be played with, not stuck on a shelf."
