Sparrow engaged in the all-important job of feather maintenance. I nearly didn't put this picture up, because the piece sold almost as soon as it was framed, and the only record I have is an old slide, taken thru the glass and not very sharp on the scan I've got. Glad I did my best with it and put it in!

I had this bird for a few months, after bringing him up when he fell from the nest. All of these works are drawn from life sketches. Bird, sparrow, feathers, preen, portrait, drawing, graphite, pencil.
