A bit of work today - water, water everywhere!

Monday, February 27, 2006

So, here we are in the final days of February and I am finally getting back to studio time after a week of dealing with my traditional post show cold, after the close of this year's Southeastern Wildlife Expo in Charleston. As relaxing and restful as taking last week off was, I have much to get going on and here I am off to a running start preparing this work for this year's Modern Marine Masters show at the gallery at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. Still not feeling tip top and 100%, was able to put in a few hours of studio time today and this is the result, along with some sketching out of ideas for the next two works that will hit the board as soon as this one is completed.
After nearly two weeks, I am happy to get this posted and on with it all!

Ahh, winter in Maryland!

With our nice snowfall over the weekend, far less than the folks got north of here but still a goodly snow for our winter, I headed out today with an artist friend to get some nice wintry reference material. Some interesting landscapes and especailly some good shots of bridges with snow for my upcoming exhibition based on works with bridges and bridge structure as the theme.

The 'Court of Appeals'. Not sure I would want to be brought before this trio anytime soon. A little something going to Charleston next week.

With k d lang playing on the old CD player, p b and j in hand and a cup of tea, just taking a lunch break from the board and wandering around the net. Just checked out my good friend, Lyn's blog and wowee-wow! Lucky gal . . . recently shooting (with the long lens) snowy owls out in Montana and on the west coast. With the recent sighting of a snowy out near Dulles Airport, about an hour and a half from where I live, I am so jealous of Lyn's 'back yard' so to speak. She sure has access to some marvelous reference material. Of course, I think I've got her beat on cows and sheep! (maybe not) Check out the link to her page, over there on the right, and see some spectacular shots of those snowies. I expect to see some paintings of these birds when I next see Lyn at an art show.

Is it February already? (and, is it a week into February at that?) Time has flown and I have been a busy guy in the studio in preparation for leaving for Charleston a week from today for this year's Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. This will be my 17th year of being a part of that show and I have been burning the midnight oil, getting the last few works done.
'Full of Grace', yet another cheetah work, has just come off the board and is ready to be framed later this afternoon. Not sure what will get posted here before I head out of here next week, but hope to post a couple more works between now and then.
