September last year. But I really wanted to paint one of my birds on watercolor paper, there is a difference for sure.

I loved this image of a little Song Sparrow I took the other morning down on the rio   ‘Song Sparrow tangled in Pink’

The true painting will emerge when my studio guy does his magic and captures my painting in all it’s nuisances of color and hue.

This photo is from the first image after I started.  I forget to capture the different stages that I create, sorry……

you can really see the misket here, it’s the dull brownish lines.  I think this is one of the funnest parts of watercolour for me, is using misket.  Sometimes I really start to like what’s happening as I paint around it and with it, so when I take it off, I have to re-see the piece with fresh eyes.  But when I take it off it feels like Christmas to me.  I really, really love that part.

It has felt so good to paint again.  To have the time and the space and the freedom to take this time, to get back to my bliss.

And birds, I love me some birds.  This little guy was inspired by a Field Sparrow that came to our feeders one day.  And only one day, I haven’t seen it since.  Must have been migrating through.

If you ever want to buy any of my art I will pay shipping to your place.  Each picture ought to take you to the link to buy it and then I will reimburse your shipping costs, easy-peasy.

Have a beautiful and lovely day,

CheyAnne

I’ve been neglecting my blog, my art, my exercise too.  I just cannot fit it all in.  How do people who work 30- to 40 or more hours every single week get anything done’?

I have been one busy Admin Girl, but it’s time to paint. If I can find my desk under the clutter before I lose interest again.  Wish me painting.

30in30 challenge, Day Two

September 2, 2013

Yeah I did it again, two days in a row and new job to boot.

This little photograph of mine has been a very favorite since the moment I took it.  It was taken out here in Lama, where we live now before we built our Sugar Shack.  This land has been in Len’s family for over 300 hundred years and it’s an amazing place.  The birds would come and land on us and eat out of our hands and this little Pigmy Nuthatch was waiting it’s turn. We got them to do this by feeding them every-time we came up here.

This is a little Pigmy Nuthatch and boy, can they be bossy birds, but beautiful, yes?
