Song sparrow…

A while ago I tried to paint this little guy with oil paint but so far it just isn’t working. I am fairly happy with this watercolour, however. I used a photo as inspiration seen here from a blog with a lot of inspiring wild life and wilderness images whose author very kindly gave me permission to work from the photos. Thanks so much!

UPDATE: New awesome poem from Tom! Thanks!!

Tweedle dweedle squee-wee-wee!
Spring is here and I am free
to sing of song of joy and call
to mates and rivals one and all
that Iā€™m the best and brightest bird
that the world has ever heard
for if there were a better one
Iā€™m sure I would have heard of them
