This is a terribly busy time of year for me, with one show after another.
I have only one book illustration to complete and it would have been finished if I had not had to make 22 birds for a show this coming weekend.
I chose a variety birds out of my Bird Books and made the most appealing.. well, ALL birds are appealing, but I only have so much time.
From Chickadees to Tanagers and even a Fionna Goosefeathers...
Many had never visited Hopalong Hollow before, such as this Townsend Warbler.
And others are frequent guests here in the Hollow..
I do have my favorite birds, Woodpeckers are at the top and wrens are very dear to me.
All in all, a pretty colorful flock of beauties I think.
I loved making these birds!
And it all started with wire and a handful of wool.
What are YOUR favorite birds of the world?
