Jealous of An Orchid

Yes, it's Dusty. You see, all afternoon I have sketched these gorgeous orchids,( my husband brought me for Valentines.) I was sketching and everytime I put my hand down a pink nose would poke me and a wiggly body would press up against my knee to tell me she was much more important than those silly long things.. Dusty checked them out as I had them on a stool so I could see the flower upclose. Now, Daisy, of course was much more concerned with the chicken roasting in the oven. She was laying by the oven groaning, so I wouldn't forget that she loves chicken.. ha! It was a nice afternoon. Haven't finished the sketch yet but it's coming! talk to you soon, Diana

Chickadee and Deer Antler

HI, This is the Chickadee and Deer Antler painting I have been working on. Pictured too is the antler I found on the edge of our forest. I was amazed to find one just laying in the pine shatters.The white tailed deer shed their antlers at a certain time of the year. Definitely planning on painting the whole antler later but I 'm working on some smaller pieces for a show now. This painting also has ice crystals in the right hand corner. See them? I have started a little Carolina Wren painting too with snow and colors similiar to these. Colors perfect for snowy weather. Now where is my coffee cup.. back to painting. talk soon! Diana

Wow! We don't usually get this much snow. Sometimes 2 inches, but look at this! Inspiration galore.The hush as the snow falls, there is a hush now. So beautiful, the sparkles and the deep blues and purple shadows. Almost 12 inches of snow. I've been painting a chickadee in the snow. I've fixed a bird feeding tree with lots of gourmet bird food ( triple decker peanut butter sandwiches, raisins,nuts, oranges, bacon grease sandwiches). I love birds and enjoy painting them. Here is Dusty, she has enjoyed leaping in the beautiful white stuff!Pure Joy! Talk soon.Diana
