Three Horses

Experimenting with trees... if you look closely you will see 3 horses heads in the branches.

Hoping to evolve trees to incorporate hidden animals and more.

Do we ever know who or what is watching us as we travel paths through woods or by trees???? Hmmmmmm.......

Free Ranging House Chicken?

So I read an article yesterday about the growth of 'Free Ranging House Chickens' These chickens are free rooming in your home. At night they are placed in a baby crib or portable dog kennel. The chicken I saw had it's toe nails painted pink, wore a little diaper tied in a pretty bow on her back. (said you had to change her diaper 2-3 times a day or more if it got droopy )(LOL).. And if really droopy you probably had a gift of an egg...(woo hoo).. hahahahaha.. Oh well, it got me thinking what my free ranging chicken would be wearing... What would your free range house chicken look like? Hmmm

Waiting for my kiln to arrive so I can start working with glass and the art clays (metal). I am so excited to start to experiment. Happy to have many new friends in the art field on Facebook where I can get ideas, critiques, and suggestions from. Along with learning much from others in the field.

Do you ever wonder what fish are thinking?

Messing around with zentangles, color pencils and watercolors... When the fish stare at you through the glass.. Do you ever wonder what is going through their little minds... ?
Do they think they are in the wild and we are in the glass bowl... ?
Are we someone's Ant Farm? Hmmmmm...

Playing with colors_Horse's Two!

Playing with color.. not happy with the way the scan came out. Original watercolor much more vivid.

Horse of color

Playing with colors with this War pony. Its been awesome to be painting again. Still working on this piece. But love the way the colors are coming together.

winter weeds

I broke out the watercolors and did a quick study of some weeds in the yard. I so miss painting. I am glad I pulled them out and dusted them off...Going to work up some more paintings - just getting the dust blown off my paints.. :)
