2013 is all about patience and this spring I took some time to develop my drawing and watercolor skills a bit. I was looking for a new challenge, and I found a medium I absolutely adore: watercolor.
Red winged blackbirds dot the Midwestern landscape I grew up in. They sit on farmers' fence posts along the road, swooping into ditches periodically, and their flame of yellow and red bursts from their wings among the otherwise green landscape.
