Waiting for Inspiration

Here's Maggie, waiting patiently under Jeanne's painting table.  Dog portraits are fun to paint because they are such expressive animals.

This is a warm up for getting back to painting, from a friend's snapshot of her husband and their dogs in a heap on the bed.  Hard to say who's the most comfy here.

Mr. Bob's Blue Beachcombers

Been gone awhile.... this is what I've been up to.  Beach hiking with 8th graders and Mr. Bob from Charles Wright Academy.  Record heat after a frosty spring, anything goes around here in May esp, this year.  Now I'm catching up on some illustrations and will be back painting soon!

Simba Singing

Here's another singer for you.  Maybe not so melodious but just as enthusiastic as the sparrow!

Singin' The Blues

There's summer in the song of a white crowned sparrow.

Sun Break

We had some sun breaks today, but it is still un-seasonally cold.  The trillium are turning pink and the dogwood has started to bloom.  The forest is waking up.
