New fox feather...


Cedar Waxwing returning....


A messy beginning....





This is the very beginning of my next painting....it is a Cedar Waxwing on top of a gnarled tree on top of a mountain that rises from the ocean in Cape Breton Highlands Park. I drew in the bird but then lost him some as I put layers of color in for the background of sea and sky. Pastels make such a mess when you are doing blending of large areas! Stay tuned!
