During a few days in the winter I painted a collection of various song birds, sparrows, Evening Grosbeaks, etc.

And I decided to experiment with a smaller, more intimate scale; 5" x 7", etc.

These are not included in the current exhibit.

Thank you Sandy! These are small, intimate, and fun to do!

I had to come back for more looks. Between you and Gwen, I've been inspired to paint some birds soon.

You do gorgeous work John.

Birds can be an ideal subject Sandy!

I recall coming across an incredible site a couple of years ago chock full of great bird images. (sorry - I don't know the address - I should try to find it again just for curiosity)

You're variety of birds down around L.A. and southern California must be quite wonderful though!
