This little sparrow is definitely looking for a girlfriend to share his house. He sits all day and chirps. I think he is confused by all of the warm weather we've had. This birdhouse has been up for years, but this is the first year I've noticed any birds interested in nesting there.

This painting is completed using only Mars Black and Titanium-Zinc White, with the tiniest amount of Pyrol Red to warm up the grey in some of the feathers. This little bird and her boyfriend with the red coloring on his head are frequent visitors to the suet cakes. She makes an occasional trip to the feeder for sunflowers, she's small, quick and lots of fun to watch.

Baby Boy, Hummingbird





















This little hummingbird was born in August of last year. The male hummingbirds are born with a white throat like the female, soon their red iridescent feathers come in one or two at a time. You can see the little bird I used as a reference from the photo below.
He's traveled south for the winter, but hopefully he will return in the spring.
My nickname for him is Houston.

It's been raining for days, so it seems the darker the sky the brighter my paintings. This yummy cake is from Whole Foods.  I said "is" but that's not true, it is officially a "was." :)

A lovely lady sent me a picture of this little pansy cake. It's rare that someone just says "yes" when you ask them if they would like a piece of cake. They always ask for a little piece. Silly. Eat the cake, drink the wine!  I don't know how this cake tasted, but I bet it was good. Maybe it was filled with strawberries...or custard...or chocolate....or raspberries. I'm just dreaming here, this is just a painting. I wonder if the bakery is open late....

I often see the grey and white Junco's that migrate to the Ohio River Valley during the winter. They fly down from Canada and stay until breeding time comes in the spring. This year I have this lovely buff colored female. She's shy, but manages to find a few seeds on the deck when she thinks no one is looking :)

Santa Ornament Painting 2016, Linda McCoy

I
This is my fourth ornament painting this year and as in the others, I put him in the holly bush in our yard. Yes, his beard got hopelessly tangled in the spikey holly leaves. I managed to get him out unscathed. In the bottom photo I listed the colors over the color swatch on the board for those interested in the palette I used. Most of these colors are Old Holland, the white is Blue Ridge, and the Radiant Turquoise is from Gamblin. I also tried a new medium which I loved, DeMayerne Medium, from Blue Ridge Artist Supply. This is just an ornament with a plastic face but there was lots of texture in the beard, so it was a lot of fun to paint. I'm working on two commissions so no posts for awhile. Happy Holidays!

I love chromatic greys, but honestly, some autumn days are just bright and gorgeous. This is a farm near where I live. The old oak was framing the view of the fields so beautifully it stopped me in my tracks.
