While the loose brush strokes and softer colors of her landscapes convey a painterly emphasis on light and movement, her still-life paintings reveal stronger and more defined forms and an almost classical sense of composition. In WIGGINS PASS, a textural piece with feathery brush strokes, Birdsall conveys a sense of morning mist along the Florida coast. Birdsall belongs to a number of professional organizations, including the Pastel Society of America, the National Association of Women Artists, the Rocky Mountain Plein Air Painters, and the Tucson Plein Air Painters Society.
