I can totally see a dress made out of feathery strips of fabulous soft fabric that flutters when a person made the slightest movement.  Wouldn’t that be a hoot to wear?  I actually hate to shop so don’t have a lot of nice clothes but I do like to dress up in pretty things!

I did a painting a week or so ago of three birds (budgies) called “Harmonizing” and really liked it so I wanted to do it a little larger.  Susan and Charley gifted me a 12″ x 24″ canvas which I thought would be perfect for a line of birds.

The name “Be Yourself” is a reflection of the one bird facing away.  He is acting a little different and looks a little different from everyone else.  I happen to think this is a good thing.

I took a few photos on the sly of this Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier last weekend while at the Clothesline Sale. She didn’t stand still for a moment and most of the photos were blurry but I did manage to get a couple.

This painting was done from a photo which was sent to me when I put out a call for good animal photos from which to paint.  When I saw this one I wanted to paint it right away.  What attitude!  The photographer does not want credit so I will leave her name out of it.  Thank you for the photo!

Other News:
The Clothesline Sale of Art was very successful even though the temperature reached 100° which is rare here in the Willamette Valley.  I want to thank everyone who came to view my art, visit and purchase my paintings!  Below is a photo of the “clothesline” on which we display our work.  Not pictured is the large six painting easel where I display larger work.
