The amount of time I have spent hovering over this painting is adding up.
I have enjoyed painting the ochre-orange sky and the branches, but my greatest fear awaits me ~ finishing up on the birds and hope that I will do them justice. Before I even heard of Wild Arts Festival, I have never illustrated a single bird in my life. My immediate instinct is that I have to make them look lifelike, at least.
Oh, you wee little finches,
give me strength!
