The raffle tickets for Chula will be available soon on Chirping Central, will update you as soon as this happens.
In the meantime, have started a new WIP of a couple of yearling Arabians. The first photo is last weeks work and the second photo is the continuation this week. These guys were so curious, friendly and loved to show off. They were such a joy to watch. This my first venture into painting equines, had a great time with the colored pencils, so thought I would try them in watercolor.
The feline numbers in the house have doubled, we now have four of the little rascals. My first question is WHY do cats insist on walking in front of the computer monitor and on the keyboard asdfghjkl;qwrtyuio’?!?!?!? And now the dust bunnies, I mean kitties are the size of tumbleweeds. The parrots have accepted the new arrivals without too much squawking, so our zoo is happily rolling along.
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 http://www.flickr.com/photos/53901904@N03/ hope you enjoy!
So 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!
