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?
Three 24″x24″ paintings on the studio counter. Sometimes it is good just to start painting… no clear destination. These cloudscape paintings were freeing to paint. I am not sure if I will keep these but it doesn’t really matter.
It seems like I always have a lot of “series of paintings” I want to work on. This is one I am going to boost up a bit higher in priority. A sort of heavenly view of the skies. Dreamy and a bit surreal or at least that is my thought today.
I painted this little study this morning. I am also prepping a bunch of larger panels to move forward with these paintings…
