Art and Nature...

"Baby Owl"
by Andrew Wyeth

This picture reminds me of the many times the children and I found a dead bird along the way, took it home, and proceeded to really observe it, really look it over -- its feathers and the colors of them, its beak shape and the legs, and how the eyes were set. Then we would try to sketch it in our nature journals.
