My goodness. Sometimes I know how to lay down a happy, chipper page! If these colors don't smack you with good cheer, I don't know what will!
I have some reading to do! I have let my Birder's World subscription pile up! And if you know me, this magazine is important! So I started reading and fell in love with a certain photo of a beautiful Florida Scrub Jay and well, got busy getting to know his form.
So, you know, part of the reason I like to draw and paint birds is because I want to know and understand them. I like to read about them, get to know their habits, favorite foods, favorite nesting spots. Basically, drawing and painting birds allows me a more intimate means to research and get to know birds. I often use Cornell's web site and I get lost reading-I mean, who doesn't find cooperative breeding interesting? I love being able to hear the bird's voice.
