Original Watercolor by Anne Gilna
Thursday, June 28, 2012
I've recently completed this watercolor of the very common American Robin standing amongst a very prolific garden plant, the Northern Sea Oats. I live nowhere near the sea, but the oats don't care. I planted a few small clumps of this grassy plant in my garden, and now I have to keep it from taking over. It has a pretty growth habit and in the fall the seed heads are attractive, but do they ever get around. Robins are extremely common, too, but they behave themselves.
