One-Line Hummingbird Painting…

My inspiration was Picasso’s one-line doodles. He did all kinds, but the one that came to mind was his dachshund…

Here are some of my quick doodles I did maybe 10+ years ago that I dug up….and I decided to paint the hummingbird…

This is an earlier picture of my new 8×10 painting….

and now it looks like this….

far from done…a few more layers and details that I need to add…but I loving the color pizazz 🙂

Wonderful Landscapes and Art Work!

Here are a few of the views I have had in the past weeks.

Below is a colored photograph…

Matt Greco on his new route, Craklin’ Rosie 5.13b out at the Bend Area, Antelope Flats- working on the intricate moves that this limestone line provided.

The California Condor has taken flight…

I’ve started on another one…

and yes, it’s the condor I have been talking about 🙂

I’m starting to sketch it out. I am also going to start dying my paper…

I’m thinking of my photo paper too…do a few test runs and see how it goes.

But I really think dying them would be amazing…

add a bit of zing before I begin…

Inspired by the wind…

Before the weather rolled in- we had a day of battling with the wind gods.

I was inspired by it…yep the brutal wind.

Who would have guessed?!

Thinking about the animals that must take cover during these winds and where the best spot to duck and take cover during these whipping winds got me thinking a bit. As I was walking through the junipers, and all I could hear was my own breath and the wind rolling its way to me across the plains and then all of a sudden a quick covey of quail came and went underground with a blink of an eye. Yes, underground would be one of the best spots to hide from the weather we were experiencing.

Below are the quails running for cover and bit of art work that came about during these snow days thinking about wind, climbing and how it all goes hand in hand…

to see my completed colored photograph of the quail please see my website under pen, paint & colored photographs!
