John James Audubon, Birds!

I loved this exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Audubon's Birds, Audubon's Words. The artwork is amazing with wonderful details. It will be on display on until May 11th. It is not a huge exhibit but a nice size. I could spend quite some time staring at these creations. The exhibit describes his methods and all the work that went into capturing these birds and publishing his works.

I love his work as a kid and I had a book of his illustrations. I was always trying to draw like him. Well, now I am a photographer and I occasionally draw a cartoon or two. It was nice to revisit his work.
