We have had some late season Pine Siskin fledglings. Hanging around complaining and begging to be fed. They are able to eat on their own but they are at the awkward stage wanting parents but sort of able to fly (I personally never left this stage). I was lacing up my hiking boots on the front porch when one of these little guys started hoped up to me and chirping. I baby birded it some water. Without effort I picked it up and carried around the house to the “Siskin Zone”. Another young bird immediately hopped over and this video was the result. I hope they will be ok. I know there isn’t much that I can do. There is bird seed and other Pine Siskins… Live Free?
Final campfire painting. This one is off to Abend Gallery in Denver. This is the last solo show I am going to take on for a while!
Pleased to learn this painting sold through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming! I am fortunate to work with a number of great galleries.
Working on some small studies. Filling the time between varnishing and frame art for my upcoming show.
The boundless charm of nature. More inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho.
The largest of the three bison paintings bound for my solo show at Abend Gallery in Denver, CO.
Without a home. Bison are such beautiful and sadly symbolic creatures.
I sold the bottom painting and shipped it off today. I painted these scenes with the idea of painting much larger variations. I can not find the time to chase down all the things I want to do.
One of three small paintings inspired by that sweet summer sun. I will post the three paintings together next week!
