Some Progress

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!

A New Painting

Am still trying out my new paints
and thought I would work on a
painting of Polly. Here it is in
the beginning stage.

I find there's so many things that I would
like to paint that it's hard to choose so I
usually have several going at once.

Will be back with an update later on.

Here we are at work!
I love having such a companionable helper!

New Paints

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!

Winter Studio

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.

Thanks for visiting!
