Chickadee at Feeder

5"x5" Oil on museum quality panel

This chickadee was looking around to make sure it was not threatened! This is day 4 of Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days Challenge.

Balcony Buffet

4"x4" Oil on Museum quality panel

I put pine cones stuffed with peanut butter, apples, watermelon and other fruits on my balcony and always had squirrels and various birds visiting my buffet!

Everglades Marsh

5"x7" Oil on panel
Day 2 in Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days. Again, this is an all palette knife painting! It's harder for me to paint palette knife paintings as small as this one. I hope to keep doing the first 15 with a palette knife, then switch to a brush.

Taking Off

 8"x10" Oil on Board
Here's the first painting for Leslie Saeta's 30 paintings in 30 days challenge. I'm enjoying practicing painting with only a palette knife!  I saw this great egret while in the everglades and I was thrilled to capture his take-off with my camera. I was so busy getting the phot that I failed to notice a gator lurking-probably the reason he took off so suddenly!
