"Poppies Three"

THIS is for the Daily Paintworks site...YES, it worked the last post...now to add to my on line gallery...:) NOW...for the REFERENCES and the EXPERIMENT!!

The past few days we have had TONS of Robins hanging out in our pines that have the blue berries...they are going crazy!!  I learned a bunch of Robins is called a "ROUND"...FUN TO LEARN NEW STUFF!!  They flit here and there SO fast I felt lucky to get this pic of a sweet little guy!!  Below is a collage I made of some of my favorite bird pics...
You can also see these pinned to my PINTEREST site that you can either access by following the link or click on the PINTEREST on my sidebar...

The experiment I am working on will be a series I'm going to call my "Shabby Chic" series (IF it works out that is...)...I woke up wanting to play some, and had the idea to add canvas to canvas...mostly for more texture...but also to see what I do with it...the beginning is below....24" x 18" gallery wrap canvas...
Not too pretty is it...HA...nope...but, in my head it may go some places...I'm still going to do my "thing" on it...but I am also thinking of it as a tippy toe into abstract...for later on when I may want to push a little bit on my old creative brain.

I HATE to have white canvas...so I rolled some color over the whole thing to get it started...
As I work quickly, and often on two or three things at once I've already sketched a bit of mountain at top with vine charcoal...REMEMBER...Shabby Chic...gotta be excited with every stray string, every smudge...etc, etc...Hopefully I'll have a large block of time tomorrow to do MORE!!

Til then...more reference photos for your pleasure...also on my PINTEREST boards I believe if you like...
gotta LOVE this fatty!!
These are my favorite ocean birds I snapped when visiting my son in Ocean Beach; San Diego...some of them have been painted already...
This cutie just made me laugh...hope it gives you a little tug at the corners of your mouth too...
HAPPY CREATING!!
