Little Red


This is such an adorable red squirrel, it seems
very young to me. As you can see it has figured
out how to get through the squirrel proof cage 
that surrounds the bird feeder.
 
I wish it well!

Winter Robins and Squirrels



My heart goes out to the robins and other wildlife
who are enduring this very cold and snowy winter.







This particular squirrel is very inquisitive
and persistent in attempts to get the
sunflower seeds inside a squirrel proof cage.

A Discovery


Such a cold day but sunny and clear...
we were out looking at nature and I thought I saw
something way out on the rocks... thinking perhaps 
it was a bird.

When enlarging my  photo I discovered this:

 
a lovely seal sunning himself!

A storm will be upon us tomorrow and I hope
everyone stays safe!

Dove & Cardinal and Brody


So many different birds have visited
 our bird feeders this winter and many pick up the seeds
that fall into the snow.
It makes for interesting couples.
I just finished this painting of the dove and the cardinal who
are companionable as they search for food.
You can also see it over here 
and it is available as a print.
 
 
 
Brody found some entertainment on the iPad...
an aquarium!
It held his attention for a little bit!

Light Snow and Snowy Owl 2nd Painting



The birds left delicate prints in the light snow
this morning.







Was a good day to work on my 2nd Snowy owl painting.

You can see a print of this Snowy owl on the chimney
on my website over here.

How I love them!

First Painting of the New Year

 
I have been so very captivated and
inspired by the
snowy owls we've had the 
amazing opportunity to observe
this winter, truly a gift.
This is my first painting of them
and the first painting that I began
yesterday on my birthday.
I love them!
 
ps. it is also on my website

Their presence has made this 
winter very special for us.
