I’m starting off the year with something bright and springy.

You can bid on this one at Daily Paintworks.

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.

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!

Chickadee and Blossoms

Adding a few flowers to my bird paintings has been fun. It’s a nice opportunity to try out new colour combinations. I can’t remember the last time I used pink!

 

Purple Kitty

I had fun with this one. Purple is my favourite colour!   

Early Bird

Robin 8″ x 8″

The early bird gets the worm. It’s true – I recently read that Robins prefer to eat worms in the morning and fruit later in the day. 

Squirrel

Squirrel 8″ x 8″

There are so many squirrels in my neighbourhood that I guess it was inevitable that I would paint one eventually. Most of the squirrels around here are black or grey, but I made this one a bit more red, because it worked so well with the background colour.
