Painting of magnolia warbler, with collage and splotch background. Nothing particularly extraordinary–looks kind of like a particular sort of greeting card!–but I’ve been wanting to paint a magnolia warbler since I saw one for the first time.

I occasionally get the grandiose notion of painting every bird on my life list, but since we’re hangin’ around a hundred and forty, it usually passes quickly. Eventually there may be a point where I gather lifers much more slowly than I paint, but we’re not at that tipping point yet.
