For the past five years I have done a small 6"x6" painting for the Portland Audubon Society's annual fund raiser. They ask about 200 artist to paint on a 6"x6" canvas and then they are sold at $40 a piece, although I think they went up to $45. this year. This is my entry for this year. The event is Saturday and Sunday November 22nd and 23rd. More information can be had at www.wildartsfestival.org. The show is wonderful with many outstanding artists, authors and craftsmen. The handlers always bring in fabulous birds that are being rehabbed and give a talk about why they have the bird in their care.

Eventually I just tell myself to put the piece aside and come back to it later, this can be days or weeks later and hope to see it from a new perspective. As artists how do you determine when a painting or work is finished?

We have had such a wet winter and spring that my thoughts are dull and dreary along with the birds who live outside in this weather all the time. I like to work from photos I have taken of crows. They really are a very difficult bird to photograph because as I get just slightly close to them they fly away. I guess I should invest in a better Canon camera with a better telephotographic lens. I also need one that takes better" in motion " pictures; between the motion of the birds and also me trying to capture my twin grandsons in motion I get really frustrated. I did these on 3/4" cradled boards in oil along with collaged sides. Think I might like to do more in the series. Question is....should I continue to work on this series...suggestions would be helpful. All comments are welcome.
