Osprey Painting and Wildlife down back

I finally was able to finish my osprey painting. I'm happy with how it turned out. I haven't been able to work on it until I got other paintings done for some shows. I've been so busy with family and paintings for shows that I have left my blog sit too long. I hope I will be able to update at least once a week for a while, but time will tell.

Our our back window, you may see animals varying from raccoons, possums, turkey, deer, bear, coyote, hawk, fishers, porkies, squirrels and much more. I've attached some photos that I took from our back field for you to see.

Bluebirds and Goldfinch

These two paintings have been licensed and made into flags, both large and small flags and also mail box covers. They are available through my site... www.judyaschrader.com I think they turned out really pretty. I think the mail box covers only fit the standard size mailbox, I have to check on that.

Orangutan Miniature Painting

Wow, it seems like forever since I've posted a painting on my site. I've been busy getting ready for a show. I can't show that painting yet, it is not to be shown until after the show. However, I'm going to try and enter a miniature art show with my little organutan painting I did. It is size 3.5 x 5 inches. This was a lot of fun to do. My osprey painting is still sitting patiently waiting for me to come back to it. I'm thinking that if I get my act together and get a couple more minis done, another large painting of black bear for another show, I will be able to get back to it. Sometimes it feels like there are not enough hours in the day. Thank you for viewing my work.

Terry's Fish

I don't have anything new to show on my osprey painting. I had to put it up until I get done with a painting for a show. Since I didn't have anything new to show yet I though I would share a photo of my son. Terry's newest catch. This morning, Terry caught this Northern Pike, the largest pike he has ever caught. He took it to Allegheny Field and Stream to have it officially weighed and measured. The pike was 41 inches long, 22.7 pounds and 21 inches around the girth. Terry normally does the catch and release when he goes fishing, however, because this pike swallowed his lure and it was caught sideways in the fish, he couldn't save him. Since he couldn't release it, he is going to have it mounted. He is quite tickled with the fish.

Newest Painting being worked on, Ospreys

This is my newest painting that I am working on at the moment. It is of a pair of Osprey's in a Sugargum tree in Florida. The photograph I am working from was taken by Jack Schott (photo below). Jack was generous enough to allow me permission to use his beautiful photograph of a pair of Ospreys. The painting is a 9 x 12, the medium is water based oil paints. Updates of the painting will be uploaded when more is done.
