Art and Stories 3

I started painting and drawing birds two years ago. I have loved little birds and crows/ravens all my life. I’ve been a landscape painter for about 40 years, but I never had painted birds. My student suggested a lesson on birds. I’m game to try anything, so off we went on a Bird adventure. I was immediately hooked! I have been drawing and painting birds ever since.

I focus on small birds, wrens being a favorite. I love watching them outside my office window. There are lots of Cardinals, House Wrens, Mocking Birds and Crows in my neck of the woods. I watch them as I walk Deer Woods Trail. I sit at my drawing table and think about their songs and movements as I draw.
