"Grounded" © Saundra Lane Galloway

Happy day to be able to paint!  I'm smilin!  I decided to finish my third bird from Barb Benki's challenge blog called "Studio Altier"  I don't know how I feel about this bird...I found that they were tougher to paint as their eyes weren't really obvious.  But, he just looks like he is really enjoying his spot down below on the ground...(thus the name)...:)

At first I was going to make this a triptych, but the way I painted them it doesn't really fit, so it is now a series!  See how easy it was to change that!!  ha...I've played around with different possibilities for hanging should they all go to the same home...which one would you do if you were hanging them all together?? 1, 2 or 3 in order shown...:)

Of course this one goes into the contest choices as well as in my mini section of my website and in my Etsy store when dry...:)

Hey, just thought you'd like to see what I woke up to...and really glad I didn't have to drive down to school in it...we NOW have about 10"...I thought it was gonna be warm!!  se le vie...:) 

I'm pleased to say that I got a nice apology e-mail from the parents of the boy who shoved me...BUT, not a word from the school...I'm happy to know some parents really care about the behavior of their kids...NOT enough to do this again...but smilin anyway!!  HAPPY TO BE FREE...

HAPPY CREATING!!  Hey...we still have a few days for the April painting challenge...hop on board if you wish...:) any questions please e-mail me at!

I love the loose style you used to paint the birds. It's nice and soft and fuzzy - just like a cute bird.

Carmelina...awesome idea!! I hadn't thought of displaying them that way!! See...another reason this way of communicating is so awesome!!

Jean...soft and are right...although I don't get to touch our birds around

I rather think the way you have them arranged in the first image is my favorite, Saundra. Then I do like things that are a bit different. I guess the school at least contacted the kid's parents then? Glad that they at least stepped up but I am glad you aren't doing this any longer either. That snow is beautiful! Oddly enough, I am already missing winter, much as I love the spring. There is just something so comforting about it to me...

THanks for your thought Autumn Leaves! I contacted the parents before I left. At least they care enough to try to do something. Hopefully he will be averted in a dangerous behavior pattern. I'm glad I said...enough! :) I can't agree with you about winter...we just shoveled over 10" of snow and more to come tonight...and this is HEAVY stuff! whew!

Très joli ce triptyque... Votre premier choix est le bon il me semble.
Tellement trognons ces oiseaux.
Est-ce possible que vous ayez autant de neige en ce moment !
Ici en France, le printemps s'installe vraiment. L'hiver fut très long...
