A dream comes true

At the beginning of December I mentioned that I would love to see one of John James Audubon's books in person one day ... Well that didn't take long! By some quirk of fate, just a few days before Christmas we were able to view an original book from his Birds of America series. Talk about a Christmas present!! Weeks later I am still thinking about it. All I can say is spectacular!!! The colors, textures, shapes, character, story telling, drama, emotions - It reminds me of how important it is to take the time to do things right, every little detail matters and I hope this experience will help me to do even better work.

format sporaśny i pewnie pięknie pachnie...
Ptaki to diablo trudny temat, ciekawam jakbyś dała radę. pewnie trzeba uważać... jest taka cienutka granica miedzy "atlasowością przyrodniczą" , przekazem artystycznym i jakim infantylnym pitu-pitu. ciepłe fluidy ślę

Wow! How lucky you are!!! I've always admired his work...maybe not his process of gathering subjects...but amazing nonetheless!!! Thank you for sharing!
