Spotted Towhee – Where to?

Spotted Towhee – Where to? (4″ x 4″ oil on raised panel)

We get a lot of these delightful song birds around where I live. There’s something endearing about their jaunty tufts and characteristic markings …and even their beady red eyes are cute!

Spotted Towhee – raconteur (5″ x 6″ acrylic on Arches paper)

I started doing a fun series of birds in December. I plan to post one per day for the “Twelve Days of Christmas” with a short poem from Tom for each. Hope you enjoy!

Well let me tell you, brother mine,
the things that I have seen!
Some have been coarse, and others fine,
if you know what I mean!

Spotted Towhee – what’s next? (5″ x 6″ acrylic on Arches paper)

This branch will never hold me long
I’ll soon be on my way
For never do I rest in song
Or pause while still it’s day!
