attitude





This is painted on a 5 x 5" cradled panel. Fun to do a quick painting after some time consuming large ones.
I want to introduce you to one of my Birmingham friends who is new to the blogging community. David Nichols is a very accomplished artist that I have had the pleasure of knowing for a couple of years. He was set up across from me at the very first art show I participated in. He helped relieve some of my first show nerves. He is as kind as he is talented. He does a wide variety of work so I feel sure you will enjoy following his blog.

  2. I just love these geese- love the way that you paint them with wonderful colors for all the whites...This one does have that attitude- hard to capture and you did it well.
    I am excited to see David starting his blog- I added him to my blog roll then. I love his work and yes as nice as he is talented!
    This makes me miss our KJ group!

  11. Your goose paintings are SO great! Very nice work. Color harmony, brushwork, composition.. all exceptional. I also appreciate the subject matter being I had a few white ducks as a kid. I know these are geese but it still reminds me of my childhood pets.

  14. I would complain and fret till the other person would feel miserable. One day while I was at my writing desk, I requested my husband to make tea; the tea I got was warm, not hot. At first I had this urge to complain and fret as always and leave the tea as I enjoy my evening tea hot. boy status
