I like to observe different birds that come to the feeder. During the recent Nor’easter (the 4th snowstorm of the season), birds come in large numbers to the deck in need of rest and sustenance. Bird feeders are a lifeline for winter birds. Essentially, birds need to consume nearly half their own weight per day to make it through a cold winter day.

This is my drawing of Titmouse, one of the birds that visits me. It is a small yet handsome songbird with its pointy head crest. Titmouse is a funny name. Somebody must have been tipsy when they named the bird.

The Olympics is over, but my sketch drawing of winter sports continue. My drawing is an ice skater, performing a balance move. Competitive ice skaters make it look easy, but clearly it is not. Do you think I captured her grace?

We are halfway through the Winter Olympics, and it’s been a blast already. My drawing is dedicated to the amazing ability and strength it takes to be an Olympic athlete, such as an alpine skier, under so much pressure. Which sport has you gripped to the edge of your seat?

This dinosaur is on alert. Is there a T-Rex on the prowl?
