Resting on Winterberries
This little painting was done on card stock and was one of the dozen little compositions I did for a Christmas show back in 2004. I always find the winter birds are so much fun to paint, their feathers are fuller and colours more vibrant against the snowy backgrounds.
Don't postpone your Happiness!!! The Best Time to take stock of your life is long before some tragedy touches you to confirm that Life! doesn't last forever!!!

Besides having a Love Affair with my camera...I feel just as comfortable with my paint brushes...doing most of my work in Acrylics, and experimenting with Watercolours. If I could paint every shot I took I would need a huge gallery....but reality says you only have so much space!!
My passion for photography and painting has brought me to this amazing area of Muskoka,It has truly been a Gift!to reside here full time...The beauty of the seasons, and the variety of wildlife never ceases to amaze me.
Enjoy my blog..
