Birdspot. On the road. Drawing birds.

East Coast, West Coast. The other night I fell asleep to a Western Screech-Owl calling softly out my window. Today I am sketching an Eastern Screech-Owl. I drew a Western Screech a couple of years ago in ink. I couldn’t work in color then. Now, in my new invisible girl state, a person without a home and one rapidly losing an identity, I throw colors around on a screen. Subtle colors, in this case. Where on earth will I settle into at the end of this year? Have you ever been without a definite plan, cut loose?

  7. Hi Sarah – I was hacked today, and you happened upon my blog about a minute after it happened! Weirdnesses are resolved, I think, at least for the moment. Thanks for the heads up!
