Skimming the Waves 1

Spring is definitely here now and this morning I was overjoyed by the arrival of my pair of North American Kestrels (Falco sparverius).

They have returned once again to their nesting box under the eaves of the house just outside my bedroom window. I look forward to watching them and their young until they have to leave and head south for the winter in the fall.

With the arrival of my kestrels I thought I would like to work on a drawing of a bird in flight and I chose this piece that I had started last year (see post on 22 September 2013).

It didn't take very long for me to ink in this small 2-1/2" x 9” drawing of a gull flying close to the waves. Once it has been matted and shrink wrapped it will be available for $30.00.
