I love this little painting! This is one of those paintings that when I get done and take a closer look, I wonder how I did that!  I especially love the color palette with the soft grays and warm tones. 

This one may reincarnate in a larger version. Though I'm sure it won't look the same!

While in Salt Lake City recently, I spent some time at the Tracy Aviary getting my bird fix.
As we walked the grounds, we crossed paths with this roaming peacock. He really did seem to give the impression that he knew he was really quite stunning. 

If you are ever in the SLC area be sure to check the aviary out. It's really quite nice and informative.

This is another painting from my outing in July. As you can see Minnesota is very green in the summer! I sometimes long for the colors of the west with it's multitude of colors but I confess after spending time in Utah recently with it's dry and very hot conditions, I was happy to see the greens and the multitude of lakes and trees  as we descended into Minneapolis. 

I do love this state.
