Sketching Birds of Prey

The Center for Birds of Prey out of Charleston, SC put on a great talk for Spring Island.  This is the first talk I've been to where the birds were allowed to be off the presenter's arm and on the ground or fly from perch to perch.  I was thrilled!  The Harris Hawk did need a bit of persuasion to get back into his cage, but all part of an amazing experience!

I worked in pen, adding watercolor later.  Stillman and Birn Zeta journal.

A Day of Dogs

We rescued two very sweet rat terrier sisters.  They are three years old and as the saying goes... Who rescued who?

They are helping us heal after the loss of our Grizzy in early March 2016.

Their first road trip was to visit my brother's familly in TN.
