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

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.

Buzz

Buzz 8″ x 8″

This guy looks a lot like Buzz, a cute border collie that used to come to the office I worked at. He was skilled at loudly announcing visitors and used his protective instincts to keep delivery-men in line. All bark and no bite (except for that one time…). 

Happy

Happy (8″ x 8″)

It was inevitable that I would eventually work my way around to painting a pig. I think I will have to do another one that focuses more closely on the face. There is so much expression that I would like to capture, and I’m not sure that I’ve got it here. Stay tuned.

The Blue Door

It was nice to paint with a limited palette. I didn’t have to make so many decisions about what colours to use, just the tones and values. I like the simplicity and it was fun to focus on the textures surrounding the cat. 

Prints of this (and many others) are available on Etsy.

Grey Jay

I would have preferred this bird to pop out a bit more but I guess I was working against his natural camouflage. I even removed the snow from the branches, as it was too similar to his head. I’m still not quite happy with it, but time to move on to the next one.
