wip birds

I seem to be running out of steam on my birds, so maybe it's time to find a new subject for a while.

My friend Cheryl is going on vacation and asked me to recommend a couple of poolside reads to her, and I realized I hardly read any fiction in 2011. I think it's like with comedies, which I don't like to rent or go see, always afraid I'll be disappointed.
Starting this month, I'm going to read one nonfiction, one literary fiction, and one genre (mystery or sci fi most likely) fiction title every month. For January:
The Swerve by Stephen Greenblatt
Parrot & Olivier in America by Peter Carey
Flower Net by Lisa See

Your birds are wonderful, we have a bird show coming up in Feb at our art league. I need to try your soft technique, it works so well for birds.
