Chickadee and Berries

While this is not strictly a Christmas painting, I think it would fit in nicely with our decorations this year.

Unless someone else wants it? For sale here!

Sparrows and Winter Berries

Sparrows and Winter Berries 16″ x 20″

Something to brighten up the days when it is dark at 4:30. I think I’m starting to feel a bit festive!

All the Bees

Here are the rest of the bees. There are a couple that I like and a couple that I’m really not happy with and one that’s sort of okay. I won’t tell you my preferences, you can make up your own mind. I’ve used up all the small canvases and it’s time to move on.

Bee Series – 3 & 4

Here are two more little bee paintings. These are going pretty quick – if you don’t count two failed attempts before these. Always more to learn.

For sale here.

The Shop

The Shop 14″ x 11″

This is quite different from my usual paintings. I painted it as a gift for my awesome nephew. Definitely fun to try something new! 

Happy Bees

A long time ago I bought a bunch of 4″ x 4″ canvases, but I can’t remember why. They have been sitting here for years. I decided that I wanted to paint some bees and these little canvases are perfect. I plan to use them all, so more bees to come!

For sale here.

Pine Siskin

Pine Siskin 8″ x 8″

I’ve seen this type of bird around, but hadn’t heard of a Pine Siskin, which is a type of finch. This painting is for sale here.

Three Sparrows on a Fence

Three Sparrows on a Fence 11″ x 14″

In case you hadn’t seen enough Sparrow paintings, here is another one. It’s very similar to this recent one, but I wanted to try it with more saturated colour.

Sparrows and Pink Blossoms

Sparrows & Pink Blossoms 16″ x 20″

I am on a bit of a roll with the sparrows – I’m painting a couple more after this. I am really enjoying working with the brighter colours. Painting flowers is new to me, so I’m having fun figuring that out.
