Goodbye to the Sweetest Month

"Bye February, See you in 2014"

February is the shortest month of the year, but as far as I am concerned it has the best holiday.  So I wanted to say goodbye to the sweetest month... until we meet again in 2014. I love the pinks, reds greens, chocolate browns and most of all... the love.

Black Bird, Blue Sky

"Black Bird, Blue Sky"

The photo of this painting is way darker than it is in person...I tried and tried and the photo  couldn't really represent it.  The colors are deep, but not dark.  The camera does that sometimes.  
This black bird was sitting on top of some boards that were on a roof.  Scoping the area for the droppings left by happy people with picnic baskets.  I seem to see them everywhere in suburbia lately.  I know they are pretty smart as birds go.

I loved the energy this dog had, tearing around the sand like a race car.  That's what the beach brings out in living souls...feelings of goodness and being alive.    I noticed after I painted this, that it has a  scrape on the board, from a sharp pencil mark.  Not too long ago I would have discarded the painting but as I looked at it, I thought,  it enhances the beauty of being created by a human. I am moving forward the longer I paint and I am seeing beauty in things that are not perfect and actually preferring them to not be.
