Double The Pleasure

I am feeling a bit like an old Wrigley’s Gum commercial…you know…double the pleasure, double the fun!

Over the last couple of days, several artists have blessed me by sketching or painting some of my bird photos.  I can’t tell you how much joy it has brought me to see their work.  I thought I would share a few, with the hopes that you will check out their blogs and be inspired to exercise your own creativity!

The first two drawings are courtesy of .

These ladies make me want to go out and take tons of pictures with the hopes of seeing them inspire more artistic endeavors.

Yep…I am definitely smiling.

  2. Such talent! 🙂 And is that “Antonio Banderas” in the last painting? 😉

  3. Kathy, I thought I’d left a comment here before, but I think WP was taking the phaser gun to my comments that day lol. I was just coming in here to try and grab some more photos to sketch. Anyway, thank you so much for posting a link to my blog here and really, your work is a huge blessing to any nature artist. You are capturing some amazing sights, and many of the birds you see in GA, I don’t see in MD at all, or at least very rarely. But even if I did, there’s no way I’d be able to get them on film the way you can (or on card? what do photogs say nowadays instead of film?)…..Thank you very much, your blog is a wonderful source for me, and I’m thrilled that you’re so pleased with what I’m drawing. I hope to improve and to one day be worthy of your praise. Thanks again.

      It was a pleasure to share your blog. And you are certainly affirming and good for my confidence…I have only been at this photography stuff for a little over a year so I still have so much to learn, but I love it!
