A stroke here and there...

Moose update
























Finally had a chance to work on my moose today; I am not rushing this painting, I do better with it in short spurts. I have a few commissions that have come in so part of my time goes to them now....but I'll still be picking at this one, can't stay away from it....it's quite a challenge!

2 paintings...



I am still working on the moose (today did some work on his body and a little on the dead tree) but I just couldn't wait to start my little gray gnatcatcher... a little bird I saw a few months ago on a walk at Shenipsit - he was sitting on the top of a dead tree looking at me, at the edge of a marshy area........I'd never seen one of these birds before, it was an exciting moment for me so he had to appear on my easel!

Slow but steady...


The moose is coming, slow but steady....MANY other things are grabbing at my time right now, but I cannot stay away from this painting and pick at it every chance I get.
