I have just returned from almost a week away in one of the most beautiful areas of the world -the town of Banff in Banff National Park, Alberta. After leaving the hotel on Thursday, I drove about 10 kilometres where there were 3 separate lakes to take photos of. One of the pictures turned out fantastically! You might see it here in a few weeks.... The conference was a relaxing and inspiring one which has me thinking about my future... always a good thing to think and create goals for the future - especially with the New Year only 7 weeks or so away!
Just to prove that I am indeed painting, I thought I would show you one which is currently "under construction". This is one of our bird feeders in our backyard. We get so many birds, both summer and winter - I LOVE to see them enjoying the sunflower seeds! When my husband fills the feeders, the birds are just about on his head and hands, anxious to be the first to eat the fresh seed! They chatter at and scold him for taking so long to fill up the feeders! :-)
We get a wide variety of birds, different ones in summer than winter, but there are some like the Chickadee which are here all year round. American goldfinches, Cassin's finches, juncos, woodpeckers, redpolls, bluejays, red winged blackbirds and many more eat their fill and serenade us with song. How blessed I feel to live in the country and experience nature first hand!
This painting should be done soon and I will post the finished result right away. Have a great weekend!
