EMPTY oil on board, 6"x4"

This is a painting I did last night using a palette knife. I can get a lot more paint on the canvas with a palette knife than I can with a brush. This has a good bit of impasto.

STANDING WATCH oil on canvas, 9x12

SOLD I finally have something to post!!! I'm having a lot of trouble finding enough time to paint and finish anything. But, this is finished--I think. It's a donation for our museum fundraiser. The John James Audubon exhibition opens at the Museum of East Texas this weekend and everything donated for the auction has to be about birds.

I love humming birds! A hummingbird feeder and this dreamcatcher hang about a foot outside my kitchen window, so I watch them a lot and photograph them often. This is a Ruby Throated Hummingbird. He's guarding the feeder.
