I often go to a local park, which has few trees but a large meadow, where it seems there is always a bird or two waiting to be photographed. This guy was sitting in lots of shrubbery posing so I could catch his elegant profile. Yesterday while I was progressing along with this painting I was also teaching an oil painting class. One of the students had a particularly good painting session, looked up and said "Victorious." I decided it might be a good name for this bird. :)

Well, it does seem a little early for a Christmas ornament painting, but right now my holly bush is loaded with gorgeous berries. So, in order to make hay while the sun shines, I took a few ornaments outside to see what would happen in the sunlight. Fun. Colors, abstract shapes, reflections and light all hitting this hand blown ornament at the same time. Took lots of time to paint, but it was a very interesting journey.

Autumn is in full force here in Ohio, and during a walk to a park nearby I spotted this Titmouse sitting in the berries. They were offset by bluish purple flowers in the field, my guess is bachelor buttons. These little birds are nervous, their grey color makes them interesting to paint, warm grey, cool grey, and some tan colors. Often birds are depicted with their feet wrapped around branches like coils, but I find they just relax them much of the time. Pretty little birds. Glad he decided to pose.

The birds are migrating now and passing through the Ohio river valley. I was so delighted this morning when first I heard a very different bird call. I waited on the deck for at least a half an hour just listening. So, eventually the little bird came down from the tree tops and landed in the tree next to the deck. Oh my gosh, I have never seen such a beautiful little bird! It sat long enough for me to photograph, and then flew off. Just an extraordinary morning.
