Since I live in Maine, I was happy to see our state bird used in this class. I used the pine cones in this painting as they are our Maine state flower. I'm anxious to do another bird painting right away to anchor down these techniques. I think I'll do a bluebird as this is my husband's favorite bird.
Whoops! Once I saw the colors in this purple finch, all thoughts of bluebirds went right out the window.
