While having lunch on a patio, this little bird and a few of his brothers and sisters decided to join me. Some being more shy than others, this one sat there watching for a while, looking his cutest, in hopes of sharing a bit of my lunch with me.  It worked on me.  We had a wonderful lunch together :)

Laundry Day

Laundry Day, 6x6 acrylic
Just over a week ago I arrived home from holidays.  My husband and I travelled to France and England, mainly to visit family, but we managed to do quite a bit of sight seeing.  We had a wonderful time; I only wish we could have stayed longer.

I brought some acrylic paints with me, but struggled to find the time to stay in one place long enough to complete a painting.  Eventually I had to just grab bits of time here and there, and hope for the best.  In the end I had 6 little acrylic paintings, with varying degrees of completeness.

It was an overcast day when I started this painting, while in the backyard of my niece's home, (in the Bretagne area of France).  The neighbour next door was hanging laundry one day, so I grabbed this painting, and managed to quickly paint her and the laundry in, adjusting the lighting to the gorgeous spring day that it was.
