Painting Poetry


I watched these two Red Bellied Woodpeckers carve out their nest in a rotten maple tree at the edge of my yard. They worked together for almost a month to make a hole big enough to go inside and have a nest. I took a lot of photos with my 200mm lens and had a couple of them printed on canvas. After printing, I noticed that the birds were not as sharp as I would have liked. Since I like to paint with acrylics, I decided to paint over the photo using the same colors to make the colors more vivid. I finished this one today.

Working together

As spring buds open around

Carving out a home

Eggs laid will hatch into chicks

Raising their young together


Poetry in motion
