Over the years I have developed such an appreciation of birds from my in-laws. Ever since I can remember Ray and Barbara have been watching, feeding and identifying birds and keeping the squirrels off their many bird feeders. Over the Christmas break we visited them. We sat looking out their large sliding glass door at the many birds eating from the feeders. These little creatures are pretty amazing and stuck with me.This painting is 11x14 on stretched cotton and linen done with acrylics.
