Bower Birds

My married last name also happens to be the name of a bird-how perfect is that?  Male bowerbirds ornately decorate their nests, called bowers, to attract a mate.

I'm beginning work on a new project, which will eventually be an acrylic painting. The sketches are based on photographs from my husband's aunt, all taken at her amazing birdfeeder in Missouri. You wouldn't believe the variety of birds it attracts!  Bluejays, orioles, flickers, woodpeckers, chickadees (my favorite)...
