I just pulled these guys out of the closet and finished them. They've only been sitting there for a couple of months. Sometimes paintings get shoved aside when times get busy. It was fun completing this miniature. The composition is a whopping
3"X3" and took way longer than I would have liked to have finished. Still though...I'm happy with the results. Now on to the next...a mini landscape perhaps? Stay tuned...

Yes, I realize fall is over and done with...but...it's my favorite season! And as I find myself cowering in my studio, safe from the viscious cold, my thoughts, (and brush) turn back to the glorious days of hiking through gilded-leaved woods. It's what keeps me sane in January! Happy ponderings!

I've never been a patient person. The winter months are long and trying so I work with as vibrant colors the palette offers to chase away the winter doldrums. Spring can't come early enough for me so I paint the garden beauties with the faith that color will some day soon greet me OUTSIDE my studio doors!
