l love birds. I love watching them, feeding them, painting pictures them and on several occasions I have held them in my hands. It felt like I was holding a "breath" when I captured a humming bird trapped in my garage. Paintings of birds were my first art sales, way back in elementary school. I was a good painter even back then and the teachers were placing orders. How could I not want to make paintings of birds even today? Last December, at an art show/sale, a 10 year old girl bought a Blue Jay painting and hugged it close to her upon completing the purchase. I will never forget that touching moment.
