Springtime in Burgundy

When we were in Burgundy a year ago last spring, we drove along the Canal du Nord one morning. The colors were those of new growth and blooms. Everything was fresh and dewy. The sun was trying to break through the drizzle. France is such a beautiful country!

Dancing Cacti

I have been attempting to paint cactus and so far, this is the only one that I would want anyone to see. I certainly have plenty of material around me! But I will keep trying because I have seen so many wonderful cactus paintings. I especially like Mark Haworth's and Kathryn Stats' renditions of cactus.

A Chicken

How is that for a catchy title? I just couldn't come up with anything else. It is my first attempt at painting a chicken but it won't be my last because it was so much fun to paint. I didn't mean to cut the feet off, but it just happened and I hope you will pretend not to notice.
