There is a competition coming up soon here in Northern Indiana, and the theme of the competition is 'Birds'. I am still pretty new at this whole painting thing, and this will be the first competition that I have planned for and attempted to enter. (I don't know whether they take abstract art - the information does not specify that.) I think that this is clearly an abstract painting, and I think it is clearly a pileated woodpecker!
