Wee Advent and New Year Birds

I make these tiny paintings (most are about 2" x 2") around this time of year, sometimes as gifts, sometimes just because. (Some of you looking at this might find one in your mail soon!) Most of these divine little beings frequent the shrubs and trees in my backyard. I love to watch them and to hear their winter chatter and song. Some I have not yet seen, but I know they are near.
