I don't know about you all but I am ready for spring. I just had a new roof put on yesterday and last night they said another ice storm was coming through. My only hope is that the last ice storm took out so many of my trees that there is nothing left to fall on the house! Anyways... back to Spring.... I went to teach my adult painting class this morning and found this cute little bird perched up in one of the branches in a vase in the frame store next door. I picked it out of the tree, stuck it in a little still life and here he is.... I must say that taking a photo at night w/o proper lighting left this little guy a bit pale. He is really bright yellow. Anyways, I think I will pop this on ebay in a day or two. To check out my ebay site click here

Please forgive me... I have been soooo busy lately trying to sell a house, do my taxes and work on a zoning issue with my studio that my only time for painting is my class time. I have been working for quite some time on this painting with my adult class. I think we started on this around Christmas and I think I can safely say that it is done ( you never know though... it grew marbles only today! ) Anyways this started as a thought.... The Magical time of childhood when you can create a house in the jungle with tv trays and sheets. A box can fly you to the moon. If you are fortunate enough to have a parent who loves to read to you, why whole new worlds open up. This painting is full of things that sparked my own imagination as a child. See if you can find some from your own childhood. I just put this on ebay today but I will probably enter it into a show or two as I really like it a lot and it is a small break from business as usual for me.
