I just sold my first print of this to a local framer. If it sells, she said she'd buy more of my prints. I'm so psyched!

For those of you who have been waiting to see more of my birds, I'm still waiting for my colored pencils to be delivered. They were all backordered at Dick Blick, probably because of the big sale. In the meantime I have drawn 5 or 6 in pen and ink, but I'm not sure I'll scan them in until I color them. Double the work! But I still want to do 100 birds in a year!

No, it's scanner art. It's a long process of setting up the image on the scanner, scanning in really hi-def, then spending hours (or days in this case!) cleaning it up! You end up with a real depth to the image.

This one is eye popping in color, texture, and design. No wonder the framer wanted it. Congrats on the sell. Please keep doing your art and posting it for us to see.
