Arlene Powers Bird Art and Discussion Site

We had a lovely vacation at the Bootstrap in Roundtop, Texas. The Bootstrap is a refurbished farmhouse on a few scenic acres of land in Central Tx. We visited with relatives, relaxed, played dominoes and had some good old Texas Cooking. Early each morning a Northern Cardinal tapped on the window. Then the camera hunt began. I chased down the cardinal, meadowlarks, chickadees, kestrels, jackrabbits, horses and anything moving with my camera. Over the next year or so, some of these images will make it into paintings. In the meantime, you are welcome to browse through some of my photos at hope you enjoy!

ArabianWIP4So the colored pencil drawing is about done, and the next watercolor will also be of horses. Got a good shot of a couple of the yearlings at the Arabian farm tours. Bird lovers, never fear, have several good shots lined up! So stay tuned, you never know what critter will be turning up around here!

  2. Hey Arlene,
    Sure did enjoy seeing you… but it was much too brief! I did get a shot of the woodpecker, finally. I’ll put it up on Flickr or Facebook. Can’t wait to see you again. There’s a really cool place to shoot birds (Canon, not Smith and Wesson) about an hour and a half from my apartment. There’s also a really cool sculpture ranch near here. They are in the same general area. Okay, now I’m going to take a look at the horsey… see ya!
