Around Sunset

8 x 8 Oil on canvas board, framed
I always think that skies look like they should be easy to paint, but it takes me so long to mix the right colors and have it look believable. I love the outcome when they work!

6 x 8 Oil on canvas panel

This is my favorite so far, one of those that seemed to paint itself. How come that doesn't happen every time?

Love this chicken! Don't know what kind she is, but I can't get it out of my head that she is all dressed up with her new hat and is out just struttin' her stuff!

Sitting Pretty

8 x 10 Oil on gessoed masonite

This is a bad photograph, I will hopefully get to do it over, but here it is for now.
A lovely hawk, watching for his next meal up in a bare tree with a wintery sky behind.
What a beauty he was, so regal in his perch!
