Rainy days and Mondays Always Get Me Painting...

Keeping my hand in watercolors is easier than mixed media, due to time constraints, and my time is definitely constrained. So here's a pretty 5x7 piece I created and matted.
I've seen so many projects with "birds on a wire" that I had to try it myself. I like the colors I used, and the sentiment is perfect. But I think I should have waited for the paint to dry before doing my birds, as they are no longer black. What do you think?
No digi images, no DT project today, just my simple water color. I'm still in the crafting game, as time allows! Hope you get some too!

Challenges I am Entering:
Connie Can Crop - Water colors
Make My Monday - Lazy Days of Summer
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Fur or Feathers? (feathers)
I chose feathers because every day as I drive from place to place, I see the black birds sitting on wires, exactly like countless projects I see online. I had to try it once, so I created this water color)
