The Avian Alphabet and EAgle Song

Well, what a ride that was. It just started as an idea from a request from my local library (who are very dear to me) to make some art for the walls during a convening of librarians. It tied in to our "Wings over the Rockies" event. I have received a lot of good feedback from the little show. I was invoking Robert Burridge's advice to work in a series. I am pleased with the results and will try to tackle another series in the not to far future. Right now, I have a swell of ideas for figure studies and deadlines, deadlines, deadlines!!

Minutes later: I just got back from walking the dog. A group of FOUR bald eagles flew directly over me making a perfect circle and singing their eagle song. What a blessing!

I love blessings! So glad that this series was so well-received. I personally love it and quite honestly, I am thinking it would make for some amazing postage stamps too. Beautiful work, Paula. By the way, I'm going to email a botanist at the university my flower photo...maybe he'll be able to come up with something!
