Sketch for Second Set of Panels

I have been feeding the local Jays, black oil seed in the Droll Yankees squirrel-proof feeder. The Blue Jays are almost too heavy for the weighed perch, but the squirrels now have to feed off the ground. The Jays have been coming in groups like this and making their usual ruckus and also that rare yodeling call. I thought the flurry would make some good ceiling panels

A Little Different-Ceiling Panels

Happy Holidays to all of you! Today is a most amazing "after storm" I have not experienced this since I lived in Illinois many years ago. Last night it snowed, and shortly after that it got colder and the wind started to blow. Now today it is sunny, but the wind has not stopped. We are drifted in.

Fire in the stove and Christmas leftovers...all is good.

I am working on some ceiling panels for a children's surgical center in NYC.
I have two more sets of panels, that will have more birds. 
I want to create the effect of "looking up" and them "looking down".
It is just the perfect day to be at the table with sketchbook, trapped in the house.
