Thanks for the giveaway, I have like a month following your blog and I really admire your work!

I have a question about the stamps that you make... where can I buy mastercarve or just carving blocks in Mexico?? the thing is that I'm not even sure how to ask for it in the store hahah..

If you could answer it would be awesome!

You are lucky to have this wonderful small red friend. Here in Québec Canada in winter we dont have a lot of flying friends in winter. Today, we have big snow flakes falling and no flying birds around...but yesterday I had the pleasure to see my wonderfull blue jay who came heating their peanuts ! They make my day. Nature is so greatfull and you know how to transfert it whith your magic brushes on paper.
Have a nice day !

oh my gosh you read ALL of those comments! there are almost 900! that's awesome :-)

Your photos are beautiful and I love them so much.
I feel a strange kind of connection to you in that I'm from Ontario and have dreamed of building my own eco-house. I get inspiration each time you share photos of your area and house - gives me something to dream of if somehow because we are from the same province it makes it more possible for me LOL! not very logical but oh well! I'll take inspiration and hope anywhere I can.
Thank you for the sharing you do here on your blog.

So happy to have found your blog! Your art work is just stunning. I had printed out some of your place cards and gift tags at Christmas. I just love birds, too.

What a lovely bird to spot - like a tiny flame of color. My boys and I have several feeders outside our windows and try to catch any passerines. We've seen a few, but nothing as vibrant.

you mean, reading all the comments... all all all???!!
So i could have told you there that your blog decided me to, at least, try my water color set that was waiting in the shelf... And i'm loving it!
I should say also that my 4 years old daughter looked at me looking at your blog, and then sh'es been drawing very cute you-are-a-part-of-me-like birds!
And when i'm looking at your flicker albums, my 2 years old son love to look at the birds, showing the screen saying "coucou, là" = "birdie, there"
And also, after beeing inspired by your blog, i carved a stamp for my wishing-good-year cards this year!
How inspiraing!!THanks for all you share! :-)

Oh, good, comments are open again! I was excited to see your illustration on a crossword puzzle book in the bookstore in my little town! I felt like telling the people around me, "See, here, this was painted by a friend of mine!"

Dear Geninne,
outside my window I can see a band of very talkative maritacas (small green parrots) and one day I also had the visit of a bold hummingbird! But no way to take a picture of them! Thanks for sharing your pictures, drawings and artworks with us.
Have a great weekend!

Thank you for the Vermillion picture, it's breath taking! Where I live in Georgia, I have 4 feeders and I get to enjoy the finches, cardinals, sparrows, wrens, titmouse and chicadees. I'm happy with them, but would love the op to see more exotic species.
