Put a BIRD on it.

Have you heard that quote? In the design world you tend to hear it, things sell with cute little birds on them! They add more "depth" to a design piece I think, there's something about a sweet bird amongst a pretty floral. Every once in awhile I get the itch to add birds into my designs. I really have not done much work with animals, living creatures, etc. but I do love a cute bird now and then!

The designs you see below all began with an interaction between my oldest son and I that I will always remember. I was outside sketching while my three children were riding their bikes, and my oldest son came over. He is an ANIMAL NUT, he has been since he was in 2nd grade and he's now 11. He knows more about animals, reptiles, birds etc than anyone I know and that is all he reads about! Anyway, he peeked over my shoulder and said "OH, you're drawing a nuthatcher.....or is that a tufted titmouse?" I said, "I have no idea, I just googled cute birds." He was not impressed, but I got a good chuckle out of it!

My inspiration bird.....it is a Tufted Titmouse by the way....

And the art work and designs that transpired from this cute little thing.....
