The Watch Dog (house sparrow perched on branch). Watercolor pencil. May 2011.
This little house sparrow keeps a diligent watch over my house, chirping to alert us of any intruders to our property. He lives, year-round, in the climbing rose that clings to the front porch claiming and defending his own little happy place in our yard.
