Something new up on the board. Working for 'gallery things' in the next couple of months now. This little nuthatch perched and posed on one of my big, backyard gnarly barked trees last summer. I just stuck my head out of my kitchen door and took a dozen shots before the little creature had enough and flew off. Sometimes, the best material is just right outside your back door!

This makes me laugh; today I went outside into my front yard and shot a couple of pictures and have started a 24x36 painting based on the shots. Don't you just love digital?!! I really used to find the lag time between what I saw and photographed, and the time I could look at the resulting reference material, was enough to quell the interest I'd had when shooting because film had to go to the developer.
