|"Baltimore", 10x8, colored pencil on Bristol board.|
This is a bird that showed up on our balcony several years ago, and I had completely forgotten about it until I was looking through some miscellaneous photos in a folder on my computer. I really liked the pose, and even though I just did a piece with orioles in it last fall ("The Offering") I decided to go ahead and do this one too. This size original is my best selling size, and I need to have a boat load of them when the season starts. I have a long way to go!
Next up I think will be a Dark-eyed Junco. I have a client whose been asking about one, but until recently I didn't have any poses I was all that excited about. I do now, though, so hope to get started on it next week.
