A Spring Visitor

Ahhh, Spring. Along with the warm weather comes our menagerie of feathered friends. We so enjoy seeing the Wild Turkeys.

Mr. Chippers, our resident Northern Cardinal, is taking his spring bath. Actually he bathes almost every day, we think Mrs. Chippers makes him!

Bluebonnets and Red Corn Poppies fill our beds. I always let them go to seed after they flower, that way they come back naturally every year. It’s fun, I’m never sure where the crimson Poppies will POP up! You can click on any of the images to see them larger.

Back to the easel! I’m working on a commission of a piece very similar to one I’ve done previously. Bonnie fell in love with the painting but just missed winning it on eBay. So… we’re collaborating on a special version just for her. Just like building a house the basic structure of the door and steps is sketched in first.

Next I begin drawing her kitty, Buddy, by the terra-cotta container.

Landscaping is now added. I label all of the flowers to act as a guide while I’m painting. I’ve been known to get in the middle of a piece, happily painting away only to realize I’ve put in different flowers than those my collector requested. OOPPPS! Happy Spring Everyone 🙂
