Yellow-rumped Warbler Watercolor

I love the yellow-rumped warbler  and
I am always so delighted when I can see this beautiful, sweet little bird
along the coast.
Inspired to paint it with my new watercolors.

New Watercolors

I am so excited to try out my new watercolors 
that I got for my birthday…
They have a different effect on the paper
than I am used to.
 I love using these colors to
achieve a soft subtle feeling.
Here's Josie in progress.

A Rainy Day

Spotted a pair of mergansers in the rain….

and along the shore this happy dog was a very good 
frisbee player.

Winter Solstice

Happy Winter Solstice

Our resident little red squirrel enjoying berries

Way up in the crabapple tree a bluebird stopped by...

The cardinals brighten the scene.

What we are missing on this day is snow.
The temperatures are very mild for this time of year.

and love

and the beauty and lovely surprises in nature

on our walks around the village we collected chestnuts
to share with squirrels and chipmunks in our yard
and this little red squirrel 
discovered them.

Now they are all gone.
