Bluebirds

Here is what I've got done on my bluebird painting so far. I have a base layer of all colors and now I will start putting in details and depth in the birds and house and will add more color to the background.

Eastern Bluebirds

My internet server is back up and running again so I am able to upload some photos of our newest neighbors that moved in. This birdhouse is about 20 feet from my living room window so I am getting some great shots.
Here is the female bluebird,
Here is the male blue bird

And here is the little chickadee intruder that keeps trying to move in with them.

Needless to say the male bluebird chases him away every time he peeks his head into their new home. I've had the birdhouse up now for several years and this is the first we've had a family move in.

Ginger the little Dachshund


Here is a little colored pencil sketch I did of a miniature dachshund for a gift. Her name is Ginger and she is about 6 months old when this pix was taken. It is small and after matting it I will frame it in about an 8 x 10 I think. Now off to clean my house.... geesh I hate house cleaning. The kids are coming up for supper tonight and my hubby will be home in about 5 hours. Will he be surprised to see the house all cleaned... that is if I get around to doing it. I keep telling him I need a wife!! :-)
