I seem to have been birding a lot lately with painting images, the goldfinch, Black Headed Grosbeak, Cardinal, Northern Flicker, Chickadee and now the Common Loon. There is not an intension for the National Audubon painters competition going on here. Just a celebration in learning how the aviary world is a flying show of delicate intricacies of feather details, geometric patterns, color and composition. I am greatly humbled by this brief introduction so far.
There are times in the studio when one needs to put their head down and simply concentrate on paintings and develop a flow that threads out into those times when it isn't possible.
The last weeks have been like that and has allowed me the opportunity to create the Northern Flicker , the Common Loon as well as make a fun contact and wholesale relationship with a local store called Backyard Bird Shop.
Also a gallery in Minnesota has signed on for images on cards as well. The Attic Gallery of American Crafts.
Hopefully these contacts will help with the costs of being able to continue this fun endeavor.
