You put your left foot in....

My brother asked me to clean up and paint a cement duck that was in his yard that was covered with mold and needed paint. I went to a friend's home to visit his ducks to take some photos in order to paint my brother's ducks (1 mother and 1 baby) in a realistic manner. I paid close attention to the webbed feet in order to get the color right, as well as the bill and eyes. Here are a few shots I took. Those ducks were so funny, and I had a great time (loved their quacking!) ~ They "quacked" me up!!!

Busy as a Bee

Oh yes, I am. Lots on my plate currently, but I am always loving being busy. This is a pic I took when I went for a walk yesterday. I was looking for subject matter to draw/paint/collage, etc. I watched this bee for a while and decided I would take its picture. With fall in the air, I feel a shift. Time to settle in my studio and get down to real bzzzzz ness! Click to see image more clearly.
