I’ve got a handful of projects in the works. Sometimes its hard to keep myself motivated on the larger pieces because they take so long to complete. Having some smaller paintings to work on keeps the juices flowing.

I just love this blue jay. He seems so proud of himself and I love his blue plumage against the green backdrop. I have a few more birds in the works and when I finish this next set I’ll drop them off at the gallery. I’m thinking that at the end of the year I’ll create a small calendar of my bird paintings for 2013.
