Glicee Prints

November 29, 2016
 
Today, I added this Gilcee print to my shoppe.  "Pretty Boy" is  a Resplendent Quetzal. A magnificent bird who is at home in the forests of Central America.  I'd love to see one.

It's a  grey day here today so it's been a challenge to capture the colours, although this picture is very close to the original. He's a bright boy!

Yesterday, I finished an new version of a painting that I've painted before.  The image below will be on Christmas cards, which I am about to order.


Of course, I can't forget my real feathered friends.; I have been out and about and have seen a few birds, although most have left the country for warmer climes.  But, luckily,  sometimes they pop by for a visit and perch in the trees outside my window.

The Three Musketeers.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful week...

Outwitted

November 8, 2016
 
We had a heavy, feathery snow fall last week, but as you can see it disappeared and I am still kicking through the leaves on the trails. On this trail, there are bird feeders every so many feet. I was dropping seeds into one when when I heard the tiniest of peeps. After scanning the trees, I spied a wee chickadee. Clearly excited she swooped down several times to investigate, but wouldn't stay long enough to grab a seed. She did, however, check the ground just in case I may have dropped one. Nope not one! Then she flew up to branch at eye level and looked me in the eye. After that she flew across the path to a tree where she teetered on the limb and continued to crisscross the path from tree to tree, making, as she flew, a great flourish of it. When she reached the bottom of the hill, she chirped loudly and watched me ascend. Once I was safely at the bottom, a black and white blur whirled by overhead. I turned and looked up the hill;  I could faintly see her feasting at the feeder. Well done birdie!

I'm drawn to moss. It's always looks so fresh and green.

Sketching...
 I'm gathering the sketchbooks.  I think there must be one or two somewhere with bits and bobs inside. I like smooth paper, so if it isn't smooth enough I turn it into a journal. I do draw in the margins though.




As you can see, my sketchbooks are not watercolour friendly.
Calendar dreaming...maybe next year.
I find it difficult to use black ink. I prefer blue.
On the needles..

The Violet Cap: a lacy hat from the 1st issue of Making Magazine.


For those who asked, unfortunately The Maestro will not be made into a print at this time because it's too large for my scanner. It needs to be scanned in parts and photo shopped...above my capabilities just now. I could have the printer scan it but it costs a lot. So very sorry.

Thank you for reading along.

 Enjoy the week...
