Inside Out Dawn Henning, 2012 Watercolor on Arches paper. More work can be seen at http://www.dawnhenning.com
It is good to be back at my drawing table after a wonderful trip to Greece. I saw my first European Magpie under the Olive trees in the gardens of the Greek Agora in Athens.
Thinking about Greece, I stumbled upon a blog I like, and found some great photos… athensbirds.blogspot.com Looking forward to being in Athens this June to see my family.
My first drawing for 2012 is a Hooded Crow, one of my favorites, they are stunning, strong and intelligent. I fell in love with them on my first trip to India, they are both compelling and intimidating.
