First Day Of Spring.....
My newest painting was finished this past week, my last one for a while. My studio is being cleaned, sorted through and boxed up over the next week or so. It is amazing how much junk I found and also located things I've been looking for as well. Too many art supplies and too little time I guess. I probably will not be getting back to painting until July as we'll have things to do on our new house that we want to take care of right away (to actually make sure we do them) and also, we want to spend some time driving around and doing things in our new area, to get to know everything and have a bit of fun as well.
Last week we finished all the odds and ends in the basement and I stumbled upon a bit of a surprise.
I found our old coffee table buried under a pile of boxes that had accumulated over it through the years ( I knew about the boxes so that was no shock ) but the coffee table had quite a pile of nuts on it.....yes, nuts and nuts mean that there was a squirrel in my basement at some point enjoying a meal. I'm so glad he left before I could run into him down there, I would have screamed my head off. We're leaving NY for Orlando on June 12 and while most of the work is done, there are still some things to sort through. Hopefully no more squirrel surprises though.....yuk.
Anyway, this little chickadee is 6" x 6" on gallery canvas and the bird, tree and greenery are all done with stucco for extra texture.
