Eagle Painting...
























This is not a real good photo of what is on my easel, but the best I could get during thunderstorms that kept the light away for photographing purposes...this is a painting (one of MANY) I have had in my head for awhile, in the end I want it to be very dramatic...so we'll see how that evolves!

Mural progress

A new day...




















A little dabbling at the easel before I head out this morning...

Getting less ugly : )
















I only had about an hour at it this morning; when you take a day off the next one is VERY busy!!! It's going to all come together soon; this one is taking some time....

Rudy...finished

An ugly stage...




















Started working on the background trees today and the great spindly one in the foreground....had to wait for the paint to dry to put in trunks and branches and fine-tune all of it, so I stopped....was running out of steam anyway. It's a little ugly now but that will change...NOT TOMORROW....I am taking a day off and going to the Norman Rockwell Museum & see his studio in Stockbridge.

Back to Rudy!






















Rudy's progress this afternoon...he's so cute, it makes it easy to paint him : )

The big picture...


















Instead of working on details I worked on sketching out the "big picture" today...plus blended a new blue for my sky....I wanted a deeper blue sky, like we see in October....clouds and trees yet to come, of course......also started the house behind it up on the hill. The surrounding landscape has changed a lot between then and now.

I made a little more progress on Rudy last night...
