For the past five years I have done a small 6"x6" painting for the Portland Audubon Society's annual fund raiser. They ask about 200 artist to paint on a 6"x6" canvas and then they are sold at $40 a piece, although I think they went up to $45. this year. This is my entry for this year. The event is Saturday and Sunday November 22nd and 23rd. More information can be had at www.wildartsfestival.org. The show is wonderful with many outstanding artists, authors and craftsmen. The handlers always bring in fabulous birds that are being rehabbed and give a talk about why they have the bird in their care.

Once again I have been lax in posting. The two pieces above were done over the spring but I never felt like posting them. I guess my problem is I really am not too sure where I am heading with the cold wax and oil paintings. I have been incorporating either botanical or birds with the abstract element representing an abstracted landscape, question I ask myself is should I continue along those lines or give up and move on. The first one is titled "Golden days of Fall" 12"x12" and the second one is "Colors of Fall" 12"x12". Fall here in the Portland area has been glorious with all the beautiful colors of golds and reds.
