I love finishing up a project that I’ve enjoyed so much; this is the image which will be on the poster for the Lesser Prairie Chicken Festival in Woodward, Oklahoma, April 17-22, 2009. I’ll be there giving a presentation: Big Adventures in Bird Drawing, and a drawing demo as well. This promises to be a delightful experience (the festival, I mean). There will be field trips to Selman Ranch for early-morning lesser prairie chicken-dance viewing (awesome), birding trips with expert guides (where you might get some new prairie species for your life-list), a ghost town night walk and owl prowl, a visit to a prairie dog town, even some good old-fashioned chuckwagon brunches. Sharon Stiteler, aka The Birdchick, will be the keynote speaker. Like I said, awesome all the way around.
Oh, and I’ll be bringing along my banjo and picking some of those old tunes to round out your great western experience at the Lek Treks and More Lesser Prairie Chicken Festival. Hope you can make it!
