mountain blue-bird

If you ride in the meadows of the Big Horn mountains, you might discern small non-descript birds alone or clustered in groups of five or ten along the fences. Nothing much to see until startled they take flight and sunlight sparkles off their wings in the brightest blue.

My favorite youngest daughter captured this in her series of birds. She’ll have a series of eight birds out soon. How fleeting and precious are the moments.

    Your favorite youngest daughter is quite talented. I love birds and I love her art!

  2. I’ve enjoyed browsing some of these recent blogs. Sounds like you are enjoying things. The Mountain Bluebird is our state bird here in NV–but I’ve never seen one. I’m thinking they are at a higher elevation, though we are at 4500′

    Love this print. She’s an excellent artist if this is a taste of her work.

    Amazing talent!!!

  6. They are fantastic and I agree about the greeting cards!

  7. It’s beautiful Bill, I hope you’ll share the series. It just occurred to me that this bird would make a great greeting card with your written text inside. A card that could be given to people facing a new challenge or adventure, meant as encouragement. Can you see it?
