I have been a member of Terry Runyan's #dailycreating group for nearly 3 1/2 years now. Up until recently I had been pretty faithful about following Terry's daily prompts. While I am still a part of her wonderful family-like group in that I post every day, I am not following her prompts right now.
In fact, I am marching to my own drummer, #365birds. After finishing Birdtober, and enjoying it so very much, I decided to set a challenge for myself. I took a few days to compile a list of 365 birds from all around the world. I typed up, printed out, and cut each bird name into strips of paper which I threw into a large glass jar. Each morning, I randomly pick a name from the jar, and that is my prompt for the day.
I started this on November 3, 2022. That means I will complete this challenge on November 2, 2023. Gulp. Today I drew bird 62. I haven't missed any days yet, and hopefully that will continue for all of the 365 days.
This post will feature a handful of the birds I've drawn since my challenge started on November 3. As I always do, I will add the bird's name and pertinent information above each of the portraits.
