White-breasted Nuthatch

This is a photo of a 
White-breasted Nuthatch.  It's the first
time I've had one visit the feeder on a 
consistent basis...(whoo~hoo)  Once
in awhile a Red-breasted will show up, but 
I haven't been able to capture a picture of 
them together so you can see the difference 
in their sizes and coloring.  The Red-breasted
Nuthatch is about half the size of the
White-breasted.  I LOVE the coloring of the
White-breasted Nuthatch!

Christmas Cardinal

Merry Christmas
my house to yours :)
I have been doing watercolor paintings and
watercolor pencil sketches for the past
3 years.  I have always enjoyed drawing and sketching
as far back as I can remember.  The subjects
that I enjoy interpreting the most are flowers, birds,
butterflies, and rural landscapes.  I hope you enjoy the
piece above entitled:
 "Christmas Cardinal"
For this piece of artwork I used
Prismacolor watercolor pencils.  The paper is CACHET
sketchbook paper by Daler & Rowney (recycled/toned).
