February 17 • Birds in Morning Light - SOLD


I'm learning that painting is all about the light no matter what the subject is. I love painting birds because they are so darn cute and full of personality. But what I like about this painting is the way the light sets the mood. This is a 5 x 10 inch oil available in my Etsy shop. Click here to see it and my other available paintings and prints.

February 11 • Suburban Sparrow - SOLD


So much for a bird-a-day in February. I have painted almost every day but even when I do manage to get a painting done, that doesn't mean it's good enough to post. I'm happy with this one. He's definitely got personality. This is a 6 x 6 inch oil available in my Etsy shop.

February 3 • Winter Light


Bird Number 3. This is a female finch in winter morning light. The board I used happened to be one that I'd painted over with new primer to cover an old painting. It made the surface really slippery compared to a new canvas board. I almost started over. Then I thought, "Maybe I'll discover something new." I learned I like fresh canvas better : ) This painting is available in my Etsy store.
