I think this might be typical behavior

It's February and this isn't any really big news.  However, maybe it can be better described as "cabin-fever-season"...or "PLEASE bring on Summer already season".

So I thought it appropriate (and Chris suggested this actually) to paint a robin. And WoW what fun this Male American Robin turned out to be! I swear I could smell cut-grass the whole time I was painting this piece! (all the while it was freezing rain outside. hah)

In the mean time, stay warm...and bring on Summer!

Sites and Sounds of Owls!

Shown here to the left...the Eastern Screech Owl. Also the most recent wild bird that I've opted to paint.

Let's face it...owls are cool! They're like "the Fonz" of the bird world. Well respected in nature (probably because they can do some serious damage to rodents and other birds) these mysterious birds are worth researching.

Take a listen to my most recent audio blog where you can hear sound bites of the Great Horned Owl, the Barred Owl and the Eastern Screech Owl.
