I admit it! next to painting wildlife, my favorite subjects are birds. I love to paint birds for greeting cards. I've just always loved cards that had birds in them as I find those cards interesting, colorful, charming and uplifting. There is none better than a bird card to brighten ones day. Those are my thoughts anyway. Right now I'm painting eastern birds as I am in Vermont and I get to see these birds on a daily basis as I'm part of the Cornell University volunteer bird counting team. I also created a habitat behind my home for native birds to feed, drink water, bath during the summer and to shelter and feed during the cold winter months.
My next attempt will be to paint the lovely and exotic Birds of Paradise.
