“White Pine Gaggle”
As close to realism as I tend to get. My studio sits on the side of a mountain with nothing but forest on all sides. From my second-floor windows I am eye level with the tall pines and all the creatures that make their homes there. Each bird is truly a work of art and incredibly beautiful. They come in colors that I am familiar with and take for granted, but if you dropped them into a rainforest, they would hold their own against any bird of paradise.
