"The Birders"

Back in the 80s when I was living in Cumberland County I joined a birding club.
We'd go to various natural settings and look for our feathered friends. I was just getting into photography at the time and got a quick grab shot of our little group.
I then went home and used the photo as the inspiration for this painting. The club also made me a life-long birder from that point on. I think it had something to do with seeing a male scarlet tanager up close for the first time...
