Just a little charcoal sketch in my sketchbook.
Sweetie just returned from a fabulous trip to Costa Rica with some great folks. He has hundreds + hundreds of photos to edit and use - and I am using some for reference photos for paintings (of course).
Here is the first card I painted on Strathmore watercolor blank cards (they are great for painting on, as are the mixed media cards and the printmaking cards). It is an Acorn Woodpecker from Costa Rica. Nothing like that here in Kentucky. This is a female (the red tuft meets with the white front if it's a male).
It seems like everything is coming up in June, including a granddaughter's graduation from high school (we are so proud of her!), our 23rd anniversary (seriously, 23 years??), and my mother's 80th birthday. Lots of plans for parties and family gatherings. I'll try to keep up, but can't promise anything!
Hope you all have a good June!
