Watercolor 16 x 24
©Jean Bidwell – “Western Bluebird”
This piece was pulled from a variety of reference photos. I had been hiking one afternoon and had finally encountered a Bluebird. Why it had eluded my “Birding Life List” for so long, I’ll never know, but true to my roots, I came home and researched its western counterpart. I perched him upon a ragged stump that I had often stuffed with home-made suet and “brought him home,” so to speak.
