    perfect tone and texture; perfect balance.

    Balance: Often pursued, rarely achieved?

    Except here: Your art work seamed with the wistfulness of your words – a nice balance.

    kelly-you always say what I am thinking–but you write more clear than I think:) Hoping that all made sense…lovely bird–I never think of a bird having feet–really…balance–so true. I have gone to the birds here–Robins-finches-and even bluebirds nesting right on my porch! I love your texture work–adds to the story–very lovely.
