I love the sound of birds after a long winter because it signals the return of warmer weather - or rather, flip flop weather! I was sitting in a park the other day and instead of listening to my music on my headphones - I decided to close my eyes and listen to the birds. The slight breeze carried their sweet voices through the air as they fluttered about and I was drawn to open my eyes and observe just how adorable birds are - have you ever noticed this? Birds have influenced artists throughout the ages and they continue to be a source of inspiration for these modern day handmade artisans! I wonder if maybe they too were out one day and happened to be uplifted by the beautiful chorus of their voices and inspired to create a piece of art? I'd be curious to know - tell us in the comments below how birds inspire you!
