My holiday card for 2017. It seemed only fitting to have Solstice traveling to a new mountain wilderness, as I moved to Colorado this year. Solstice brings a sprig of Mountain Laurel from her previous eastern home as she meets her new friends - ravens, magpies, Steller's jays, mountain chickadees, a snowshoe hare and a bighorn sheep.

Watercolor on hot-press Fabriano, 10X14 inches.

what a beautiful picture of a griffin. I love the colours and the way the laurel
is wrapped around their neck.

how cute. I have a pair of Magpies around my area, they also had offsprings, hence I saw some young Magpies late summer in our yard.
I like them being around here and I regulary leave them some treats on my window ledge, especially now in winter. I noticed, They stay in the area. 
The other bird profit from it as well, we got quite a lot of Blackbirds over the winter.
