#365birds SEPTEMBER 2023

I know. I know. I am woefully behind in my blog posts. It seemed that when I was linking up to other bloggers' Link Parties, I was much more committed. I gave that up in May as the result of a medical experience. Since then, I seem to have been merely treading water. 

I HAVE, however, kept up my daily bird drawings I am happy to report.

In this blog post, I would like to share with you a handful of bird portraits I'd done as part of my #365birds challnge during the month of September 2023. As I always do, above each drawing, I will note the type of bird it is and where in the world he/she can be found.

And there you have it. Being September, I was still in the midst of trying to conquer my yearlong challenge, which I finally finished in November. Imagine! 365 days of bird portraits!

These are awful snapshots of my drawings. If you would like a print of any of my bird portraits, contact me and I will get you a good quality print. Please remember that these are my personal art works and are not to be used in any way, shape or form (I'd always wanted to say that!) without my express consent. Just let me know if you want a print or two or three . . .
