The gulls were hovering over the ocean as the wind picked up this afternoon...they were so beautiful to watch and I was thrilled to be able to look down upon them from a higher vantage point and to capture the moment with my camera.
Ellie May and I spent the day inside working on art, watching the snow gently fall and keeping an eye on the birds visiting the yard in search of food... we have sunflower seeds, suet and apples to offer.
This morning I heard sounds on the roof while I was working upstairs in my studio. Had noticed with the latest snowfalls, some tracks on the roof...hmmm, who could that be!
As I looked out at the dolgo crab apple tree beside the window, I noticed some goldfinches eating the crab apples.
and then I saw her or him... our red squirrel must have taken up residence in the attic again for I have been hearing commotion in the attic for quite some time and didn't know who was up there. Several autumn's ago, Dave had blocked the outside entrances to the attic but he evidently missed something!

On Saturday, January 9th, at Gooch's Beach in Kennebunk, Maine many people gathered for a special event to raise money for a charity. This little dog had a great view from the warmth of his car for the temperature outside was about 15 degrees F. Click here to see what all the commotion was about!
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from the pets who have touched my life, our garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more.
Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you.
