Art and a Story

Over the years and with the many photos I've taken of wildlife and nature, sometimes there is a story. This is where I will feature art and the story that goes with it.

Red Squirrel Cage

It seems we've adopted a red squirrel, or two. We recently bought a new feeder that had a cage around it to protect it from the gray squirrels as well as the bigger birds who eat so much more than the little birds do. I certainly never expected any squirrel to fit through the openings in the cage. But for the red squirrel, that is not a problem.

Missing the Oriole

At this time of year, mid-spring, all of our favorite southern birds make the long trek home to our backyard here in New Hampshire. I wait for them, keeping an eye out along with putting up a couple of hummingbird feeders along with orange pieces, hoping to lure the Oriole to my back deck. I'm often fortunate enough to not only see the Oriole as he enjoys the orange slice, but also to get a few photos.

Spring Chickadee

At this time of year when I've just finished up a novel (and am in the final stages of editing, getting it ready for the printers), I'm really missing my painting. A friend I used to visit nearly once a week, especially during the spring/summer/fall months, is preoccurpied with caring for a failing husband so she isn't available at all anymore. Which means, I need to find my own time to get up into my studio and paint. With all the art supplies I have that are just waiting to be painted on, I really need to take time away from everything and just paint.

Zen Deer

The deer are back! Although I did see them around this winter, nibbling at our Holly bushes at the front of our house and at the deer lick at the back of our house and at the edge of the woods, they are becoming regular visitors to our property now. And I love seeing them!

Kitchen Utensil Sketches

Although this was not the best week for me since I tested positive for COVID, I did sketch the previous week with the subject Kitchen Utensil Sketches. This was fun and I sketched a couple of spoons; a wooden spoon and a slotted spoon.
