Artful Bird Blogging

5 Jan

I regularly share bird art that I find in my perusals of the Internet, particularly the fantastic Etsy site where you can buy directly from the artist.

There are lots of bird artists out there who blog and I wanted to highlight those in this round of bird art.

I recently started following (which sounds like stalking no matter how you look at it) Catherine Hamilton on Twitter.  She posted a sketch of a Tufted Duck she saw in 2003.  A sketch.  Sigh.  My sketches look like stick figures done by a 2 year old. Click on the image below to visit her 2003 site and see all her “sketches.”  They are well-worth spending time with a cup of coffee.

My best friend gave me a copy of Artful Blogging for Christmas this year.  It is a quarterly magazine from Somerset Studio (well-known for their art quilting and other-related magazines).  I poured over the beautiful and inspirational pages in awed amazement.  I was particularly thrilled when I found A Spattering featured on the pages.  Toni Kelly’s bird art is lovely and her blog is very much an artful blog.  Again, go click on the image to see more of Toni’s artwork.

Does anyone have any blogs to share that are a seamless blending of birds and art?
