…whenever I see a beautiful bird (and they all are beautiful), I want to paint or draw it, but when I put paintbrush to paper, sometimes my excitement and love for the bird shows up in extraneous color, as in this representation of Big Blue:
Red and the Peanut is named after my first bird memory. When I was about six, I was at my Great Aunt Mary's house and she was telling me about Red and the peanut. "Red" was a Northern Cardinal that had trained Aunt Mary to feed it peanuts on demand. Since Aunt Mary's "Red" started it all, what better name could I choose?
