Very nice indeed - it can't come quickly enough for me. Great pose on the robin.

Nice idea to combine various spring elements and paint a robin without snow!

Let's hope the weather starts improving soon to go along with all the other signs of spring that are beginning to appear!

Always nice to see signs of spring nature_lover. I wonder if you've thought of just adding posts to the same thread. That way the rest of us can keep track of what you're doing. I do know that you've posted other work but I tend to forget what it is because it's on another thread buried back a few pages. Just a suggestion! Do what seems best to you.

P.S. I do like that you combine the bird with its environment.
