I live in Florida. But I grew up in the Mid-Atlantic, where we were known to have White Christmases, and we sat around blazing fireplaces drinking steaming mugs of hot chocolate in December. So when Christmas time rolls around and it’s still 90 degrees outside, I find myself missing the festive wintery atmosphere of my youth. In an effort to try and make it feel a little more like the holidays, I created this piece of art to capture the joys of a snowy day. Why wait for winter, when you can make your own?
Feel free to turn your Donna Downey Signature Bird Silhouette stencil into any winged creature of your choice. But if you want to create a bird similar to mine, the reference image I used for the Red-bellied Woodpecker can be found here: http://natureismytherapy.com/2014/02/25/why-should-you-care-about-bird-conservation
