Sparrows on the Fence

I like it when I can mix up the greens with another colour. Especially purple! Helps the birds to pop out, I think.

Great Blue Heron

I never get tired of seeing all of the Blue Herons in Jericho Park in Vancouver. There are so many – nesting in the trees, feeding at the ponds and flying over. Further down along Spanish Banks, dozens wade into low-tide looking for a meal. Lots of painting opportunities.

Hummingbird

There seems to be a lot of hummingbirds around lately. I see or hear one every time I am out for a walk. I guess they are enjoying the stretch of sunny weather and perhaps the quiet, empty streets.

Squirrel (No. 2)

Squirrel 8″ x 8″

Here is another curious, playful squirrel. Or if I’m realistic, he’s probably wary, defensive and ready to run. But still cute.

I seem to have lots of time for painting these days…

My thought when painting this cat was that he was peaceful and relaxed, but somehow he’s ended up with an evil look in his eye. I find that stare to be a bit unnerving.
