My drawing table sits right in front of a large window overlooking a portion of our back deck. The deck has several bird feeders for all the wonderful visitors we have year round. I think this is a slate-colored junco . He was quite beautiful and visited only briefly…I actually had to draw him from memory since he was gone by the time I grabbed my sketchbook.
I love birds. Love their cuteness, their colors, their songs, their seemingly care-free-ness. This past weekend, in Asheville, I was captivated by a particular artist’s work which included birds in just about every painting. Check out Sarah Faulkner’s work here. You’ll be glad you did!
