Bird Drawings

Bird size: 

4 inches X 3 inches -

8 inches X 5.5 inches.

Materials: colored pencil, bristol board, pigma pens.

My morning ritual of feeding and watching the birds while I drink two cups of coffee sets the tone for a great day. Drawing is my nature; nature is my fodder. 

Tricia Adler's birds would like to tell you some stories. At times playful, at times emotional, these birds stand on the ground with us. Adler's birds reveal the quirkiness of our human rituals and relationships. In their shapes, patterns and gestures, we somehow find ourselves.
