The summer art season is over, here in Alaska. Painting new work continues all year at a liesurely pace. Since I have plenty of inventory for next summer, there is no need to push myself. These paintings are my latest efforts.
The bottom painting is an 8x10" acrylic called, Snipe, Snipe. I'm not real sure how likely it would be for someone to see two Snipe together like this. I've only seen them as single individuals. They come together for courtship in the early springtime. I just completed this painting about two hours ago. I like it well enough. As I have stated in other blog posts, I love to paint cryptic birds like sparrows, shorebirds, and female ducks. I also enjoy buildling up weedy fields, and grasses. They are majestic landscapes in miniature.
