Downy Woodpecker

My chapter of the CPSA, DC114 has been asked to provide an art show for the NC Aquariums.  This is our third year and we're pleased that this venture has gone so well.  The Aquarium provides the theme and for this year's show, they have chosen "The Maritime Forest". 

This is a downy woodpecker.  These birds are fairly small, about 7 or 8 inches long.  I took the photo of this bird last winter and he was hanging upside down.

This is a small piece, only 7 by 5 inches.

On a side note, I can't believe that I haven't posted anything since November of last year.  Where does the time go!  Sometimes, I just don't think folks are really interested in the everyday mundane stuff.

This is lovely Jan. I love the background you've put in - hazy, misty, arty, almost oriental - nicely done.

This is really beautiful! Just looking at it makes me think of how I enjoy waking up to the sound of woodpeckers.
