John James Audubon -White-tailed Jackrabbit, Franz Joseph Haydn-Concerto #1 in C,William Blake - Laughing Son

A reader recommended that I add a search button.  I thought this was a terrific idea so you will now find it on the side bar if you want to search for something in particular from the archives. 

This is our last week of studying Audubon for now, next week we'll continue with Rembrandt.  Notice the color and detail in this painting of The White-tailed Jackrabbit byJohn James Audubon. This might be a fun one to try copying in watercolor or colored pencil.

 This is a violin concerto by Franz Joseph Haydn. Concerto No 1 in C

A fun Spring poem by William Blake

          Laughing Song
When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy,
And the dimpling stream runs laughing by;
When the air does laugh with our merry wit,
And the green hill laughs with the noise of it;

When the meadows laugh with lively green,
And the grasshopper laughs in the merry scene;
When Mary and Susan and Emily
With their sweet round mouths sing 'Ha ha he!'

When the painted birds laugh in the shade,
Where our table with cherries and nuts is spread:
Come live, and be merry, and join with me,
To sing the sweet chorus of 'Ha ha he!'
