This guy seems to be a cheeky little fellow! I love his attitude.  Due to my recent interest in birds (besides the ravens) I've been paying attention and find myself being more observant of their presence.
I'm also learning more about them from various websites and blogs One such source is Sharon Stiteler, aka The BirdChick. If you're interested in birds, be sure to check out her website and blog.

Friday night, we had our opening reception for the exhibition of this cycle for Project Art For Nature.
It is an awesome and beautiful show. So many diverse styles. I'm inspired to try some new techniques
and mediums.  My experimentation will have to wait until I finish a few projects. I've got an animation I need to create art for and I'm headed out to Wyoming in two weeks with a group of artists to spend 
5 days painting in the mountains. I'm really looking forward to our time back out at the 7D.

On Hold

This is a great one Deb!
Wonderful how you tie all the brush
strokes together.

At least you're painting.

I love the multicolor and textured background. The bird is also lovely and full of personality. A stunning and wonderful picture.
