Still working on the pastel version....

Image
Below is the oil version....already I like the pastel better!

Coyotes...

Image
I think you can see where I am going with this. The mushroom has 2 sections....on the front will be more than one coyote howling (only one is there right now) and on the small back section is the answering howl


Thinking "Spring"....2 Red-Winged Blackbirds...

The chickadee and the red squirrel....

Image
Yesterday I was watching the action around my bird feeder and saw a red squirrel's tail sticking up out of the snow in a tunnel he had made in the deep snow below the bird feeder. Then, as I watched (with camera in hand) a chickadee landed on the snow above him and tilted its head apparently trying to figure out what that was. He hopped a little closer, tilting his head, then suddenly the squirrel popped back out of the hole and the chickadee jumped straight up in the air!
I decided to try to put it on canvas with oils, so that is the top painting. This morning I really wanted to do it in pastel and that is the bottom painting that I am still working on. I still have yet to master the oils....I get a much better feeling with my pastels. Hopefully I can finish it this afternoon....
