This is a small collection I have been working on that I hope to have out to its venue soon. All of the paintings are 6in x 8in. Having worked on larger pieces for some time, it is somewhat refreshing to get back to several smaller scale works that give a relatively instant gratification. This collection is a reflection of the wildlife here in Minnesota and the Midwest.
The temperatures in Minnesota have dropped recently, bringing with it an influx of migrating birds. As I observe, I find myself visualizing all of the bustling bird feeder activity as various songbird paintings (yet, not starting any pieces because I have so many to finish already). So perhaps I will noodle the composition options for a while and come up with something interesting.
