Wonderful magic! I feel as if I've time traveled and landed in a fairy tale...wondering who's in that tower. I love the feeling of quiet achieved in this simple composition.

What is the medium, Catnap? I love the 3-D aspect of it. And a vey romantic idea! :)

A bird's home is it's castle! There is a wonderful symmetry to this picture - an excellent composition indeed.

I sketched this out with a pen on copy paper, scanned it, and then used my Paintshop Pro to fill it with colour, and messed around to produce darker areas and texture.

Some of us have been having a bird thing lately, fall must be coming in quickly. I wonder what secrets your castle birds can tell.

The Birds are safe, but are the men? };-}

I love birds. When I go outside and hear the birds they always make me feel good...safe. Like everything is right with the world.

The shadow cast by the castle gives your illo a three dimensional feel to it. I love how you do that.

There is a sense of magic in these birds. I like your innocent perspective.

Love your stuff. And, I'm glad the birds are safe. I lost a stellar jay last week to a marauding cat. It was tragic.
