Focus on what you love and work hard at it.

This is a close up of the first sparrow in the Beard Man painting. I have been trying to photograph sparrows for months but had little luck getting a clear picture. Recently while eating breakfast in a Melbourne cafe I had the perfect opportunity to take photos close up of  the sparrows who were also having breakfast on the tables around me. City birds have less fear of humans I suppose, so it was easy to take some quick snaps. Enough detail, especially in the eyes to complete sketches and then spent a while on this first painted edition. There will be several more sparrows added to the beard hedge.

Beard Love.
