Season's Greetings 2011

Since I resumed acrylic painting a few months ago I decided to buy some little pre-stretched and primed 6x8 inch canvases. I thought I might use them like sketches and they might force me to keep experimenting with acrylic.

So a thread on the Wildlife Art section of Birdforum today focusing on paintings that illustrated the theme of Season's Greeting and Happy Holidays was just what I needed to try out those canvases.

This is based on a photo of a Dark-eyed Junco that was in our Swiss Stone Pine after a rare October snowstorm. And we've seen no snow since!

Happy Holidays to all.

Happy Winter Solstice Ken. Two House finches just arrived at my feeders. Maybe some snow tomorrow. Ellen

Thanks Ellen. Hope that you had a Happy Winter Solstice up north. Now that we've gotten some cold weather clothing as presents my guess is that we'll see little or no snow this year................

But I should be careful what I wish for.
