I posted a few new things to Etsy this morning - a new painting and some earrings. Feel free to check it out!

So, I've been inspired by watching these eagles everyday. This weekend I am going to try and do some eagle paintings. Unfortunately I don't have any paintings to post today but here's the link again in case you want to check out adorable eaglets!

Happy Friday!

Basmati the Cat

Basmati is a friend's lovely cat. She's so tiny and small and especially cuddly. My friend asked if I could paint her for her husband's birthday and this is the result. The scan has the wrong color of eyes so I touched them up but it was too wet to scan so the picture is just a close up of that part.

Sun Bittern

The sun bittern is one of my favorite birds and I loved the way this painting turned out. (It's also pretty small, 7 1/8" x 2 3/4".) This bird will open its wings to warn off any other critter it feels is a threat. It has two large red spots on its wings that almost make it look like a butterfly. A male once saw me as a threat at the zoo and I was amazed at how beautiful a warning can be. Enjoy and Happy Wednesday!

Miniature Chickadee Painting

When I was finding scraps in our wood shop, there were a bunch of tiny redwood rectangles. I took them not really knowing what I would use them for. I started three tiny paintings this weekend and am LOVING them! This painting is 2 1/4" x 3 1/4". It was new to me but it was really fun to do. I have another small painting to post (it's not quite as small) that just might be my favorite so far. Happy Tuesday!

Eagle's Nest

The link takes you to a live feed of a pair of eagles caring for their young. The camera is on the nest 24/7 and currently there are two eaglets and an egg. It's so intriguing - I've had it on in the background during my work day and getting to see the pair of eaglets as well as the pair of eagles together are a special treat. Enjoy!


I finished a few paintings this weekend that I'm really excited to share! Once they're dry I will scan them in and share. Just wanted to have a small update. Happy Monday!
