Spring Birds

Some of the spring birds I saw from a drive this past weekend.  East of Coaldale. It is amazing how one day you can look and not see a bird then the next day they are everywhere!

With all the fields flooding the returning birds are finding lots of open water to land in.  A REAL change from last year as last year even the lakes were drying up.  Many of my favorite birding spots have actually been dry for a few years.  Some in farmers fields have been turned back to producing farm land as they have dried up enough to get equipment in. My only concern is that this water is only a spring thing and birds will start to nest in the flooded fields and then they will dry up.

I am not one to say everything is a result of global warming but something sure has been playing havoc with the rain and heat patterns.

High Level Print

Another high level print done and ready to head out. It is like one of my babies is leaving for its new home!!! Love this view of the bridge!

This frame helps the bridge to stand out even more. The black outside of the frame plays off the black of the bridge. It is amazing how a picture looks so different in different frames. Even the thickness of the frame will make the print look so much different. I have framed this print many times in my classic black frame and lit looks great. This frame changes all that up!

Sign your prints?????

Another question that I get a lot is “Should I sign my prints”? and “How should I sign my prints with a real signature or printed digitally”?

Hand sign?

First let me say I DO NOT HAND SIGN MY PRINTS!!!!!!  Why? My signature is horrible!  I see so many artists with amazing signatures. Then there is my signature that looks like a bird flew over the print and dumped on it!  So for me a digital signature is the only choice.
