house sparrow

Another subject I'd like explore more: birds, And especially "lbb"--little brown birds, which are so numerous around my feeders. And because there is so much to learn about browns and grays.

snowy barns


Painted from photos found on Google Images.
Struggling to get back into painting regularly, I thought a few of these scenes, which have perennial appeal to me, would be a good jumping off place.
They remind too of my perennial resolution: to learn to paint trees!

painting with friends

Painted with my friend Mike, who suggested we paint our painting supplies ... a ready-to-hand and appealing subject. I've seen so many lovely paintings of jars of brushes or tubes of paint, but never tried one before.

happy holidays

Happy Holidays.
And best wishes for the New Year.
My pre-New Year resolution, and my only resolution, will be to get back to painting and blogging.
