Your Common New England Bird

watercolor, pen, 11x14"
Being surrounded by so many birds lately, I had the opportunity to be in the presence of my inspiration for this peice. These birds I saw were those common to the Vermont forests: Blue Jays, American Gold Finches, Cedar Waxwings, Crows etc. Yet, even though, I was engulfed by these beautiful creatures, I wanted to make one with a bit more color. Hard to say, this guy spawned from a crow.
