Frosted Morning

Frosted Morning 10 x 18 pastel on board
I am posting this painting after hours of trying to get the color better, the actual painting is softer in color, really showing the delicate color of this scene in early morning fall near our home.Just the edges of trees and grass were touched with frost giving an almost feather like appearance.We see frost in winter but very seldom see it in this venue early in the morning.

Beauty on the Pond

Beauty on the Pond 6x6 oil on panel
The warm lilies against the cool lily pads and water seem to glow. These have always intrigued me and always are the center of attention in any pond. This is one variation of two that I have done, I will post the other painting as well in days to come.

Fat Butt

Fat Butt Squirrel  5x7 in. oil on panel
You may think this a not so nice title but am sure the squirrel would be happy with the fact that he has eaten his way into a fat butt  and thereby survived the winter with a little weight to spare I am sure. We have been entertained outside our kitchen window by three of these squirrels for the last several months and they have been more than a hoot in their antics.  Enjoy! and smile with me.
