Le Visiteur

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!

    No wonder you get such nice visitors. Any bird flying by must be charmed by that feeder. The last couple of weeks I am ‘into’ cross-hatching and look closely if I can find it anywhere – found it!
    Like the splattering too. A cheery drawing.
