Homer took this photo of a Red Winged Blackbird perched on a limb on Fripp Island, South Carolna, in April, 2010. I loved the strong silhouette and added a texture fill in the background a bit using PhotoShop. The screechy songs of these birds fill the air on the South Carolina coast. We’ve heard them all seasons. This was inspired by both Lois Bryan and Jan Pillar who have created some amazing bird art with textures!
