May the Dog be with you.

If you haven’t heard, it’s been a mite chilly out.

I know, I know, it’s shocking news.

I’m sorry I had to break it to you like that.

Personally I don’t mind the cold or snow.

Especially when a walk around my neighborhood looks like this.

I must admit, it is a bit rough to have this much snow and a white dog.

Of course when temperatures drop into the frostpaw levels, the dogs need to mostly stay inside.

Sometimes when I try to make them go outside even when it’s not that cold out, they simply vanish into thin air.

I don’t  know how that happens.

Hmmmm.

It’s a mystery.

I recently made a bunch of ATC’s  of animals for a trade.

ATC’s are artist trading cards. They are 3.5 by 2.5 inches, the size of a regular playing card.

These are in acrylic.

They will most likely appear larger on your screen then they are in real life.

Atc, aceo.

And here’s a couple of ATC’s in ink.

Have a good one!

Ode to a Turkey

There is a turkey in my yard
I don’t know what he wants

tom_wild_turkey.
He struts to and fro
And yells oh such nasty taunts

turkeyface

.
He waggles his wattles
And snoozles his snood

.

And he blocked the driveway
Cause he’s in a fowl mood

turkeysitting.
But I will not let him
Get to me

For instead I have painted
A watercolor tree.

The End

As the Suet Spins..

The continuing story of a bird, another bird, a third bird, some other birds, many many birds

and a little bit of suet.

It was a cold yet sunny day.

The wily woodpecker whistled..

“Mine! All mine! The suet is all mine!

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!”

A woodpecker and suet in the snow..

“Ahem” the lady cardinal quietly coughed.

A female cardinal and a woodpecker.

“Yeeeeeeees?”

woodpecker_female_cardinal_intimidation.

“Did you..you…eat…all..of the suet!!!!!” the vivacious vixen gasped.

“I did! I did eat the suet!” whispered the woodpecker as he bowed his head in shame.

“But I Still Adore You!” said the woodpecker in an overly dramatic capitalized way.

“Please!” he continued “Eat The Rest!”

“Okay, mmph, mmph, mmph.” she mumbled with a face full of suet.

woodpecker_cardinal_suet_female.

“Oh no! Your boyfriend is coming! I’m outta here!”

“Heeyyyyyyyyy!” Squeaked the Red One.

“You Vixen!” he squawked.

“Oh Dirk!” She sobbed.

“I’m leaving you.”

Dirk looked around in confusion.

He appeared to be all alone.

Stay tuned until next time.

When Dirk meets a suspiciously scurrilous sparkling sparrow.

cardinal_sparrow_birdseed.

Will he survive the suspicious scurrilous sparkling sparrow’s speech?

Will the vivacious vibrant vixen vamoose?

Will the wily woozy woodpecker wallow wearily with wanton whistles ?

Stay tuned..

As the Suet Spins..

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year.

I cannot think of anything clever to add to that.

So…

Here’s a photo of a turtle.

From Heron in…

I surely will know

That sometimes herons stay

Even where there is snow!

Strange but cool.

Please excuse the fuzziness, I was hiding, albeit badly, behind some reeds.

Judging by the look on his face in the last photo, he found me.

What a glare!

So I guess I’m “It”.

Hide!

Christmas Trees, Peeping Toms and Dog Portraits

It’s that time of year again.

Dummy was so excited to decorate the tree, he forgot to put his pants on.

Dummy_christmas_art.

He thinks he’s sexy.

No wonder we have so many peeping Toms.

peeping_tom_turkey.

Yeah, I see you Tom Turkey.

That’s right, strut away all casual like.

But I know what you did..

turkey_wild_strut.

Sampson, I can’t believe you let them get that close to the house.

What do you have to say for yourself?

Westie_dog_groucho.

Really!

And to think, I made a portrait, just for you.

Acrylic, 8×10
