On the easel and other things....

Paintings for the bird show are wrapping up. All the fine details are almost complete. I am beginning the framing, labeling and pricing along with a few other goodies. I do plan to have a drawing for one of the paintings. Yes, you have to attend the show to be entered.

Sir Issac Newton was shipped home to Colorado yesterday. Kathleen says she will get a photo of him posing with his painting, which would be awesome....I am so proud of this painting. Thanks to her husband Dan for providing a great photograph. So often I get the old Polaroid shot indoors....almost impossible to work from....

Not much painting this week. We have dear friends who are being relocated, so Craig and I have committed to been spending with them weekly until they leave. I did do another study, though. If you have Facebook, I have a few up still available and add weekly. Any subject ideas for these?

"White Peacock"
5" x 5" oil on panel

"Overcoming the Seeds of Doubt" has been sold. I am so honored and humbled when someone spends their hard earned money on one of my paintings. You can read the narrative at the link.

Hi Tracey!

The Bald Eagle is magnificent. All of them are beautiful and yes, Newton will be my favorite always! I am picking him up from the post office today and depending on the level of cooperation from the real one (bassets have a mind of their own) we will get a picture to you! I'm not sure where I will hang the portrait yet, but I will send you a photo of that too. I'm tempted to have it in my studio.

Thanks for the shout out to Dan and his photography. I know I'm partial but his photographs are awesome. I'm glad it made doing Newt's portrait easier. :)

Thank you again. Tonight is going to be a great night!
