We're making some progress here on the painting of Polly. (Polly is Ellie May's daughter who lives next to the studio in our house) I thought Ellie May fell asleep on the job but as you can see below, she's keeping an eye open!
I believe one can never have enough paints, and was excited to receive a set of watercolors as a Birthday gift. ( some of my paints sets go back 30 years! ) I'm trying them out this morning and I just love them. (thanks so much California family!)
Last night Ellie May, my artist assistant cat watched as I made my way to the studio. It's been such a long time since I have kept in touch with you through my studio blog. Very different from June!
We've had about 3 snowfalls in a row but the sun came back and the path is shoveled.
How about coming down the steps and come in out of the cold. It's warm and cozy inside.
Up the stairs now...
I'm working on birds... we saw bluebirds one week ago on the coast of Maine...very exciting but also very unusual for this time of year...hope they will be fine. To see one of the bluebirds just click here!
Oh dear, my devoted helper has decided to sit on the painting I'm working on!
I'll sign off for now but will be back more often to share what I am working on.
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from pets, garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more. Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you every day.
