A bit of whimsy today. These little black capped chickadees look like they are up to something. They were the stars of a much larger painting I did a while back and it was inspiration for this small daily painting.
I don't usually paint on the weekends but I had a couple hours to spare. It was either that or laundry. Occasionally I will use reference material from sites such as pixabay where artists post pictures for one to use copyright free. They are a nice break from my surroundings and good exercise for my little daily paintings.
drawing and painting horses is always challenging. I may or may not have worked on this one a bit too long. I am finally comfortable with the results but I would like to paint this one again more loosely.
After a week of Fall like weather we are back into higher temps this weekend. I am not ready to say goodbye to summer just yet.
A girl and her cell phone. Seems we humans have a permanent attachment of a cell phone, at least most of us. Including myself. When smartphones first came out I wasn't interested. My family tried for years to get me to try one out instead of my flip phone. Texting my kids took forever. Then finally one day years ago, I finally broke down and got one. I am hooked, there is no turning back now. They are a blessing and a curse. I love that I keep in touch with my young adult children more often with a quick text here and there. The camera and music apps are always used. Even downloading art for my blog and corresponding with you, all done on my little computer with a phone! #outofthedarkages
