  "Now I Know my ABCs"
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  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.

COLD WAX AND OILSTitle "Crows Visiting the City"

Jacqueline McIntyre

This is the most recent cold wax painting I have been working on.  It's larger than my previous paintings in wax and oils, this one is 16x16 inches done on a panel. What I like about working with the wax and oil  combination is the giving and  taking of the process.  Layers can be added or removed, although the process does take several days or weeks depending on the drying time of the layers.  I am always wondering if the painting is done, questioning if I have "gone too far, should I add to it or should I take away parts?" 

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.
