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.

Deer Foraging

I thought this would be appropriate for the season, as it’s based on a photo from last spring in Alberta. Taken just before they all ran for the trees.

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)

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

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.
