9x6" oil on panel
For some reason I am up before the sun...way before! Today was 3:30...I'm developing a nasty habit of waking and then my mind starts, and I give up and start my day. Aaaahhhh life! I decided this morning to make it work to my advantage by getting some things done...posting being one of them.
"Momma Pear" is the third in my little series of this fruit thing. I suppose I am hungry for fruit and for summer...and both go hand in hand! I am READY!!
Since I will be soon doing the daily teaching thing when the teacher I'm taking over has her baby...ANY DAY NOW...I am thinking of creating a painting challenge or two for my followers and those who wish to participate...so be watching for that to come soon!!
I have been busy working on paper cast molds and will soon have more to show you. As soon as the sun comes up I am going to be casting from two new molds I made...a sunflower and a blackbird...as well as my little beeper bird I created the other day. You saw the small one in my post the other day that I made for my mother's Joy Day 3-D card. The blackbird came from a cast iron bird I have on a bird feeder. I liked it's simple shape with it's little fat beak, so I looked through my photos and found a bird that sort of matched. The closest I could come up with was a crow...THAT led to some study of crows and ravens and blackbirds...and so this little mold that will be revealed in a cast came from that...STAY TUNED!!
I've decided to place my mini's on my website in a category of their own. My patrons have mentioned they would like to see the whole shebang; mini's and all! YES!! I have got a few of them...so this will take a couple of days.
So, off I go to welcome the sun to my day...and all the fun creations that will come with it!!
