I've just returned from the New River Birding and Nature Festival in West Virginia, a fun, camp-like and personable way to learn about birds from the experts. And an equally fun way to meet other people who love nature.
No matter how much I wanted to sketch the beauty around me, I did well to survive the rigor of the schedule and take in all that was available to enjoy and learn. So my sketchbook journey now becomes a way of slowing down my experience, gleaning out my favorite discoveries and enriching my world as I integrate all that I learned on my sketchbook pages.
To see more about this birding adventure, visit my New River Festival Posts at Vickie Henderson Art.
