Birds from the Wild: not from the caves

When it comes to birds, nothing that I can imagine can match the variety and ingenuity of nature. Fortunately, my studio is on a whimsical wildlife flyway, so birds from the Very Extremely Imaginative Bird Families visit frequently. They agree to sit for portraits and to tell their stories. They also eat my snacks and hang out with Max the Cat, who manages both the snacks and our visitors.

Find these and other creatures at my ETSY shop (the link to the bird page), at zazzle, at the Art Shoppe at Midtown Global Market, and directly from me at art fairs. Many of the birds are featured in The Small Friends’ Chronicles, and there are dozens of roosters in The Backyard Roosters of Saint Paul.
