I just recently bought a couple bird feeders that I can watch from my studio window. It's really been fun to see who shows up to try out the new restaurant in town. So far mostly house wrens, chickadees, cardinals and goldfinches. Oh, and one determined chipmunk who tried really hard to reach the feeder to no avail.

I caught this guy hanging out in my flowers. He blended in so well that I almost didn't notice him.
Nature's perfect camouflage.

First Signs of Spring - Oil painting of Tulips

This should have been posted in a more timely manner and we are almost to summer!
My coworker came up to me the other day and said to "Get painting! You haven't posted since March!" Where does the time go?

This has been a crazy 6 months with all the disruptions in my house. Just when I was thinking everything was done I decided to put new flooring in my studio space, which then led to some
custom built storage and of course painting all the walls. But it is done and I'm moved back in
and getting things in place. It was worth all the disruptions and having everything moved into other parts of the house.

Here are a few pics of the space. My favorite part is all that storage. I'm still working on new lighting
but that will have to wait awhile.

'Library' area - next up a nice comfy chair

as you can see there are a few new things on the easels
