MacKay Island National Wildlife Refuge, NC and VA, November 2012
I actually made this illustration a few years ago, but I haven’t posted it on this blog yet, so I decided to use it for this week’s “Illustration Friday” for the reflection theme.
I am frequently inspired by nature, and the environment surrounding me, and this was no exception. Although not native to either Virginia or North Carolina, I feel like the loons are an iconic species of the New Hampshire area, where I spent time when I was younger. It was during a trip to a friends camp on a lake in New Hampshire that I came up with this idea.
