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.

Loon

I had fun painting this loon. Lots to work on with all of the patterns and reflections. Not sure it’s a total success, but definitely good practice. 

Crow #3

Here is the last of the crows (for now). These paintings are available as prints on Etsy.

Crow #2

Crow (2) 8″ x 8″

I really enjoyed working on the first crow painting, so I decided to do a couple more. Here is # 2.

Crow #1

Crow 8″ x 8″

This is the time of the year when you see young crows learning to fly. They are so vulnerable – usually sitting helplessly on the ground until they figure it out. I watched one little guy get off the ground, only to slam into the side of a parked car. Kind of comical once I realized he was okay.

Another Blackbird

Red-winged Blackbird (3) 8″ x 8″

I’m much happier with this black bird than I was with the last pair.
