My feathered friends

One of the many things I love about being in Florida is the amazing
assortment of birds that visit our state during the year.
If you aren't a birdwatcher when you arrive here, you quickly become
one.  They are impossible to ignore.  Some for their size,
some for their "chatter", others for their color.
I decided to start adding some of these feathered friends to my sketch book,
and share them with you.  Happy PPF


  1. Fabulous sketches. You are so lucky to have such exotic birds to inspire you. Cardinals look such fun to paint.
