It was a busy day of getting ready and packing for our trip tomorrow.
I took some pictures of the sunrise this morning with my cell phone. A real beautiful scene!
I took a few pictures during the day with my camera of the turkeys, blue jays, Chickadees and chipmunks but the sunrise beat them all out for top spot today.
Tonight’s painting was almost forgotten completely…I was getting ready to post to Instagram and here when I realized that I hadn’t painted a painting yet! I packed my favourite brushes but thankfully have some older ones lying around.
Last month I submitted a photo to the Quebecairshow calendar contest. The photos were posted to Facebook and the ones with the most votes win a spot in the calendar. I’m thrilled to say I won a spot in the calendar, December actually!
Oh beautiful snowy landscape. It looked like a Christmas card this morning. It didn’t last though, as the sun rose it started melting.
It was a challenge picking today’s photo. I wanted one that represents our first snowfall of the season and was torn between the one above and this gorgeous blue jay
Yesterday, I received a bunch of Christmas cards from a charity looking for a donation. As a gift, they included several cards, notepads and stickers. The cards are beautiful. One has two Cardinals and another has a chickadee. As soon as I saw the birds I said “I’m going to paint those”. Now, I say that every year and have been for years and I’ve never actually got around to painting them. But this year is different because I’m painting every day and, at many points throughout the year, I have looked for inspiration because I ran out of ideas! So tonight, I painted the cardinal. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out.
