Three Eggs and Drape
This painting is done in oils and was setup and I did a class on how to do eggs. Eggs was done on a stretched canvas and measures 8″ x 10″. It looks nice in a kitchen or restaurant. Eggs are harder to paint than you think.

Buffalo or Bison was done from my photos taken in Wyoming. He was a massive animal.
These Calla Lilies are done in oils and with a painting knife. That means I did not use a brush. Lots of juicy textures and abstract colors thrown in.
We are wishing our son a very Happy Birthday today. We are praying he is happy and well. WE love you very much.

Our Backyard is done on a birch panel and with oils. I looked out the bathroom window one morning and saw this view. It was breathtaking and I decided to see if I could capture the atmosphere. I think I did and I am pleased. I hope you enjoy.

I picked these azaleas and painted them for you.
Mine don’t need watering..
An Azalea bush, is a popular flowering bush and foundation plant, with bright spring blooms.
Azaleas bushes are members of the Rhododendron family. The biggest difference between the Rhododendron plant and an Azalea plant, is the Azalea is a deciduous bush. It sheds its leaves in the fall. The Rhododendron plant is an evergreen. In general, an Azalea bush is smaller in height, leaves, and blooms.
Most varieties of Azaleas grow two to eight feet tall. Fragrant blooms put on a show in the spring in white, lavender, bright orange, gold, red and purple colors.
Smaller in size, Azaleas are poplar potted plants as gifts for Easter and Mother’s Day. After blooms die,transplant azaleas outdoors.
My new Gold Finch
by Barbara Haviland in Animals and Wildlife
This is my new Gold Finch Bird and he is done in oils on a 16×20 gallery wrap canvas. They are such pretty birds.
A Few Facts about the Gold Finch
The only finch in its subfamily to undergo a complete molt, the American goldfinch displays sexual dimorphism in its coloration; the male is a vibrant yellow in the summer and an olive color during the winter, while the female is a dull yellow-brown shade which brightens only slightly during the summer. The male displays brightly colored plumage during the breeding season to attract a mate.
The American goldfinch is a granivore and adapted for the consumption of seedheads, with a conical beak to remove the seeds and agile feet to grip the stems of seedheads while feeding. This Finch has also been known to eat garden vegetation, and is particularly fond of beet greens. It is a social bird, and will gather in large flocks while feeding and migrating. It may behave territorially during nest construction, but this aggression is short-lived. Its breeding season is tied to the peak of food supply, beginning in late July, which is relatively late in the year for a finch. This species is generally monogamous, and produces one brood each year.
Human activity has generally benefited the American goldfinch. It is often found in residential areas, attracted to bird feeders which increase its survival rate in these areas. Deforestation also creates open meadow areas which are its preferred habitat.
