My Little Chickadee - Sold


We've been feeding the birds near our front window and they love the sunflower seeds.  I've never seen so many small, delicate birds come to the feeder.  The cutest is the chickadee.  They will eat out of your hand, if you let them.  We also have juncos, blue jays,  nuthatches,  redpolls, and pine siskins.  And, that's only this time of year.   I love my camera - it's got a great Carl Zeiss lense and I was able to take some nice photos from my window to the feeder and trees.  This is a chickadee, hanging on to the tree next to the feeder.

Morning Light on Tirrell Pond


We haven't walked into Tirrell Pond this  year, but I love this place.  The hike is about 8 miles round trip and we didn't think the dogs would do it this  year.  (Yes, we blame the dogs!)  This is from a  photo I took a couple of years ago.  This is the second time I've painted from this photo but the first one sold and I love this place.  I thought I'd play around and paint it in morning light this time.

Shadows on the Path


This path is located on the Sagamore property in Racquette Lake, New York.  The Sagamore is a Adirondack great camp 4 miles from the main road and the wilderness around is just that, wild.  This path was actually a wagon road for the farm that was on the property in the late 1800's and is now used as a walking path through the woods.  It's a quiet place and I loved the shadows crossing the path the autumn day we hiked.
