Winter Love Birds For February

This is one of my new paintings in 2015.

I've been away from this blog for too long.
I have a new helper, named Josie.
She resembles my beloved artist assistant, Ellie May.
To see when Josie came into our home and our hearts click here.
Some more recent photos of Josie are here.

Here's my first painting of her.

Some New Art

I have been loving the spring with the flowers
and birds and inspiring to me.
Here are the little white Puschkinia flowers that have a delicate
blue stripe on the flower petals peeking out of the reeds.

There's a sweet little chipmunk that has been constantly filling
her cheeks with sunflower seeds at the bird feeder. I have become
so fond of her.
She paused on the front step beside a heart rock on her route
when she became aware of me standing there.
I thought it was nice of her to pose for my camera!

I love all birds and at the beach am always excited
to see plovers.
Came across a photo I took last fall and it has inspired
me to capture the beautiful plovers through my art.
This is a work still in progress.

to see these when we have
been out and about near the ocean.

In Memory of Ellie May

As I continue with this blog I have a big empty spot my heart
for our beloved Ellie May who passed away on February 9, 2012.
She was my studio cat supervisor and my very close companion
of 19 years. I miss her every day.

Her spirit is with me always as I continue to draw and paint.

My mind often drifts to the view out of my dormer window
as I work at my little desk in early spring.

Have been inspired to create many new paintings
of the things I love and see around me.

I hope to display my new art work and prints here.

More soon.

loyal helper by my side!

Inspired by Sea Birds

Late afternoon as we rode by the beach on this
rainy, sleety cold day I spotted some small
birds flying over the ocean.

They inspired this painting.

I think they are called purple sandpipers!
