Found some art I had done a long time ago...it's undated so I don't know when. Probably 2002-2005. Anyway...I did these on a different kind of paper. I think it was a strathmore watercolor pad - student grade. But I really love the way the color sits on the paper more than the expensive "artist-grade" Fabriano artistico I'm using now. I'll have to get another pad and experiment some more.
Found some old sketches, decided to play with the ink pens...keeping it loose. Some were really small - 2".

Wow!! A confirmed sighting of a hermit thrush in our yard yesterday! I had glimpsed them in the past, but never got a good enough look to be sure. Confused as to why they are here now, having read that they don't come into our area until April. I do so hope that they build a nest or at least SING this spring! I love their song. Haunting, echoey, spiritual.
