Happy Christmas Eve Illustration Friday! This week's prompt is "winter".

I like how the birds that stick around all year get all bulbous in the winter. It seems like they should freeze, but they always just look so fat and happy and carefree. Maybe I'll name this one "Botero".

I hope all who read this have a special holiday season! Maybe take it easy on the suet, though...

Lovely bird.
Yes, they look big, but they need extra food in the winter to keep their fat.
Merry Christmas,
(Illustration Friday)

Beautiful beautiful drawing! They look so round because they've fluffed up their feathers to make them better insulators.

Very pretty illustration, very much captures the essence of the word. Happy holidays to you too.

I *love* this bird pic!!!!!

The juncos here are really busy which, according to my family, means that snow is on the way.

They're not fat. It's just the down coat they're wearing. Excellent artwork.

Happy Holidays!

I never realized there was an actual website for this! I'm going to have to give this a try, I think. It'll be perfect for the new year.
