Barry,

So good to see your work again.  I miss it when you are not around, but I am certain that if you did not have such a busy schedule, we'd see a lot more of you.

I love this little bird - so bright.  He has a lot of personality.

Thanks eveyone.

Yor're right Mea, but retirement is still years off so I do what I can. This piece took me 9 hours over the past month, an hour here and there. However that is more time then in the past. If I can get one done a month then I will be doing good! That is my new goal. Will be starting animal studies shortly and then want to do an original from an old hobby of mine, photography.
