acrylic still life

Tho't I would post this 20 x 16 acrylic still life painted on canvas.

I'm anxious to get outside and start painting my garden. Only problem is - the freeze we just had has killed or damaged most all the perennials.

Saw my first ruby-throated hummingbird late yesterday. He spent a lot of time at my feeder. I will have to make sure I have plenty of nectar, as there are no flowers in the yard right now. And that also means I'll have to plant a lot of annual plants to ensure they will have a good supply of natural nectar.

watercolor rock study

Just a little study of Blue Ridge Mountains and rocks. I like this! It has a fresh, airey feel to it. Spring has sprung and life is beginning anew.

Although the weather this week is far from springlike. It actually snowed yesterday. We probably had about an inch of dusting on the ground and trees.
