More trees...


I think that will do it for the trees......be back tomorrow : )

Fox painting......continued


Working on the background woods - the pastel makes lines on the foreground snow when I make trees and branches, so the back has to be finished before the front. I guess that makes sense anyway : )

A day at the sound...




Took a day off today and went to do some yardwork for someone at their house on the sound, got to walk on the beach a bit too (fringe benefit!).....watched cormorants perched on pier posts, a seagull who stayed pretty close, and saw brants, a type of goose I have never seen before - here are my photos!

Back to work tomorrow.......refreshed.........

The bobcat today



For 2 days I have been doing other necessary things - although I don't quite understand how anything can be more necessary than painting......finally tonight I got to my bobcat. He just wasn't jumping out at me so I added a darker background and I am starting to like him more. I do like his eyes so the rest will come........in the 2nd photo I cropped it similar to the way I will mat it when I am finished.

Fox and Bobcat Artwork



Two pieces I am working on - a fox hunting grouse and a close-up bobcat portrait....The fox is coming around a stone wall that is in my favorite spot to wander in Vermont.
