I want to give a shoutout to a friend, Allison Reed. She's a mighty talented artist who paints a lot of chickens, dogs, coyotes, birds, and lots of other things with big bold colors and color palettes I don't think I could ever dream of. I looooove her work! And I'm so happy to have one on the wall now! This is a black phoebe, and black phoebes (and Say's phoebes as well!) have a very special place in my heart. :-)
You should definitely check out her portfolio of work! (Click on her name in the paragraph above). Her blog is also linked here, it's "remembering" over in the right sidebar.
