Black Swan

I'm working on a project, and the day before yesterday I started getting sick. Yesterday I felt awful and couldn't do any work. So, today I was feeling somewhat better but I was having such a hard time getting back to work, so I thought I'd do something fun just for myself. I had a small piece of leftover paper, and so I painted this little piece.

David, my husband, was so great to make a frame for my picture, and I am extremely pleased with how it turned out. Now it's all ready to go off to show. Thank you David.

Also, for anybody who hasn't tried it, feeding chickadees out of your hand is just about the most wonderful thing ever. David and I went on a walk today, and he took this picture of me feeding the chickadees. Their little feet felt so funny clutching the tips of my fingers.

Checking the Cards

I love sketching from my imagination. I'm a bit impatient, and I like to see my picture appear so quickly. Now back to some sloooooow oils.
