Whooooo Hoooooooo, the Kickstarter Project made the goal, and tomorrow is the last day! SO THANK YOU to all of my project backers!!!!!  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1030315317/arizona-native-bird-painting-series

LibbyThis is the start of my latest Work in Progress, a charcoal of the BEAUTIFUL Libby, education eagle at Liberty Wildlife. I hope to finish it this week as the Kickstarter project is closing, and I need to do at least one more painting in this series to have enough time to get it printed for the Audubon show In December. So the next couple of months will be very hectic, as I get all of this STUFF printed and all the mailings done for the project backers. Don’t worry, there will still be plenty of blogging going on, hope you will all stay with me for the new WIP. Meanwhile back at the WIP, this is Charcoal on gray Canson Paper. I use white and black charcoal, hopefully using the paper for the some of the mid tones. you will not recognize the paper by the time I finish with this, LOL!

Ripley, the African Grey has been visiting for the last ten days, I hope he hasn’t transferred any new vocabulary words to the flock! He is quite the character. The home flock is VERY vocal, but mostly just LOUD junglelike  noises, Ripley is verbose with a few sound effects. He did take home the cat’s plaintive begging meow, and now my friend Mary keeps looking for the cat. I still miss the sound of elk bugling waking me up in the morning, maybe I need to take the flock next time and see if anyone will pick up that sound!

How did it get to be October already?????????? Can someone please explain how the speed of time increases directly proportional to the amount of stuff that needs to be done, or is it directly proportional to your age? Did anyone write an equation for that? So the more that you need to do, the less time you have to do it in????? Hey, I will blink my eye and it will be time to blog again! See you with the next update!

    I’m absolutely positive this is going to be one of my favorites, if not the favorite. That is heartbreaking and I’ll tell you why… there’s not a way in the world I could ever, ever, ever afford it… and even if I could, my dwelling would be so inferior to it, and it would take the national debt and some change to build a dwelling worthy of it. Okay, maybe some slight exaggeration there, but, to quote Jim Carey… I like it a lot!!
