    Thanks Alexandra!

    Here's today painting: Blue Jay ref from pmp-art.com.

    It was ultra-relaxing to paint... while listening to Celtic fantasy music. : )

    Very nice! I think the outline to the Blue Jay is really expressive

    I like this very much- especially how the head is detailed but the rest is loosely painted. Is it watercolour?

    Thanks DaveRage, Enug.... : )

    Enug; The Blue Jay is mostly with the oil brush. But, I tend to just grab tools without thinking.... I probably grabbed the wet palette knife. I haven't tried the watercolor brush much, that is something I need to explore.

    Tonight's painting... a wise old owl. : )

    Love it! Just enough detail for my brain to fill in the rest.

    Really nice, each in their own way. I especially like the owl. Has unexpected marks that well suggest 'owl'. It's a very clever approach, and as Pat said, we get to experience the process with you as our minds work with what you described and didn't need to say. Engaging.

    Thanks eighty+ and D Akey!

    Red Cardinal... ref from PMP.
    I think about dozen people have painted this picture, thought I'd give it a try too.
