I was thrilled to discover there are LOTS of birds here in North Carolina. When we first moved to Arden three years ago in December, I was flabbergasted to hear so many birds during the winter months. In Minnesota, only the sweet songs of the chickadees or the raucous shouts of a Blue Jay can be heard. Every time I hear a bird sing, my heart smiles.
thus it's not too surprising that painting a series of showcasing North Carolina birds is right up my alley. I playing with a couple of unusual techniques throughout this series that will make them quite unusual. Because there are so many varieties of birds here, I can savor this project will take some time.
