No Cashews for Yous

Sold-8 x 10 acrylic on linen panel

My personal birdie modeled for me!  I have a thin post attached to the top screw down on my easel for leaning a mahl stick and she's adopted it as her personal place to oversee what's going on down below.  So I get a feather in the paint now and what.  It's good to have adult supervision.


  1. That would be a great painting your bird with the bird watching you work. Then you could paint a painting from the photograph.

    I love your work.

    1. Thank you Jean! That would indeed be a good photo...and painting - if only I could paint like Norman Rockwell. Maybe painting the back of my head would work. The human face gets skewed every which a way under my brush.

  2. This makes me smile and feel very happy. The technique you used for the feathers is fabulous.
    Can a friend take a pic of Birdie watching you paint? I would LOVE to see that.
