November 30, 2011: Bird in the Brier Rose

The original sketch was done on November 25, 2011 while sitting out on the terrace on a beautiful afternoon. The view is of a Brier Rose bust that grows just off the west terrace berm and a huge semi exposed rock that it grows over. The yard birds just love this bush.
