Week 52 – Great Egret

Week 52!

52 new paintings in one year. And actually, I did more than 52 paintings because I didn't count any of my Commemorate the Date paintings, or the 32 illustrations for Antlers, A. It feels good to have met my goal. It feels good to know I don't have a deadline next week!
So, my last painting for the project was this great egret, standing on it's nest in a deep green marsh. I have enough new bird paintings for my 2015 calendar, which I will put together in the next couple of weeks. I'll let you know when it is available.

Week 51 – Canadian Goose

It is somehow particularly satisfying to me to paint a goose. I base that statement on this painting and another goose (gosling and goose) watercolor I did earlier this year, for the soon to be released Antlers A, A Cabin ABC Book (written by Hadley Barrows).

Week 49 – Ovenbird

This is an ovenbird, a songbird in the warbler family. From Wikipedia: The nest, referred to as the "oven" (which gives the bird its name), is a domed structure placed on the ground, woven from vegetation, and containing a side entrance.
