“Birgit and I start our day with one luxury. We each make a simple fruit and cereal breakfast,
take it back to our bedroom and sit up on our bed to eat it. But the luxury part is looking out the window.
We have a bucolic view of the big leaf maple, meadow and forest with a little lake. However, the real
ever-changing joy is the visitors to the bird feeders. Sometimes flocks, sometimes one or two and
of course they change with the seasons. We have seen over a dozen species at the feeders and
occasionally we have a bird feeder, a sharp-shinned hawk might take a siskin. But as with most
predators, they miss 9 times out of 10.
In this painting I have shown Birgit perched on the end of the bed after breakfast, checking
the identity of a difficult finch. We realize that feeding birds is controversial in some circles.
We pretend we do it for the birds but really we do it for us.”
