Fly an owl postcard

us4029573Just for fun, I painted a great horned owl on a postcard. I think the recipient will be pleased.
I love to put colors all over a page and have it come out looking like a bird… in flight.

donaldbikecrowsA friend asked me about doing a painting of Donald on his bike and as a result, I revisited a painting that I did of Donald FOR Donald some years ago. He loved crows and he also loved being on his bike of course. The reference for this painting was from when he was riding around the Grand Canyon, one of his greatest achievements on his bike, and it truly shows his joy for living.

Last night on my walk, I was observing crows, so this morning at Seward Park, when I saw some hanging around, I seized the opportunity to paint them. The crows were very hopeful because a little girl and her parents were feeding the ducks. Alas, the tot did not like the crows, so the crows had to wait until the party was over to look for the dregs..
