Enjoying the warmth...














I started my new sign in the last couple of days, enjoying the unseasonal warmth to work outside, as this sign is 4' x 6'....some things are 'off' and need to be corrected....that will come. This is the sign to replace the smaller one at my mural studio.

A wonderful day...
















My day started with a great walk in the woods - saw wood ducks, had a funny encounter with a turkey, and witnessed two pairs of geese arguing for nesting rights to a certain area......the last of which will become a painting. Finished Riley and the satellite dish today.

Painting outside!















It was so warm out this afternoon I had to get outside for a bit and paint, so I worked on the satellite dish for awhile....what a joy to paint in natural light outside! I am hoping to finish it tomorrow...

New feather tonight...













My new grouse feather tonight....

Back to feathers...













It has been several months since I painted feathers and I've been itching to do it...so yesterday I took some time to paint a grouse feather. This one is going to the National Wild Turkey Federation for their Banquet on May 1st in Ontario, Oregon as a raffle prize. I have another "for sale" grouse ready to be painted - show season is soon upon me, time to get 'in gear'!
