I rarely know what’s going to happen when I start drawing, forms just happen. But it seems that round and fluffy feathered creatures have made their way through my work recently.

They also got to me through my camera.
This is where we pick up our eggs each week. These hens live a good life: they belong to a very nice neighbour who lets them wonder around freely and they end up their lives as old hens, never in a crockpot.
These last ones were taken a while ago:
The owls were photographed at le Refuge Pageau in Abitibi, a very special shelter for animals.
The second photo was taken during a three day eco-bike tour in Outaouais.
And last but not least is a bird that was photographed on our balcony in Montreal. We left food outside for the stray cats, but these birds ate it as much as the cats.
And since we are talking about birds in this post, here is today’s inspiration: the beautiful documentary “A falconner’s tale” by my friend Marc Girard. It’s available to watch on line!
