Starting An Illustration Series: Birds & Botanicals

I’ve decided to start a new collection of drawings, pairing birds and a tropical or not so tropical plant. I don’t think I should limit myself. It’s no secret that I love birds. I love identifying bird songs just as much as I love drawing them and I love plants. I’m planning on creating 20 of these illustrations, a nice sized collection, and I’ve three already.: Heron, Kingfisher and Loon. These little projects bring me immense pleasure. Have yourself a wonderful day!
