Sentient 4.5 x 2.5"

Here's the first miniature of the year! I found this guy at the Lincoln Zoo. He was sitting at the top of this rock pile in a single beam of sunlight. He knew he was breathtaking and regal. That's why I titled it "Sentient". I think this ape knows he's of royal lineage! Now on to something a bit more colorful to chase the January blues away!

Bromeliad Mary Jansen 3.5 x 9.5"

I'm kicking the year off with a burst of color. I love the Bromeliad collection they have at the Garfield Conservatory in Chicago. These plants look as though they have landed here in little space pods from alien planets! It would be fun to do another Bromeliad using a rainbow of colors...perhaps I shall! On my pallette now however is a Green Heron and miniature for a spring show. So much to do! So little time! Happy New Year's!
