I'm painting outside this week. It's gorgeous and our winds aren't at gale force for a nice change. My plumbago bush seemed the perfect thing to paint. I painted a larger piece of the bush, then did this small 8x6 piece of just one flower. When they're dry, I'll get a better picture for you. Scanning always gives better results. Here is a preview of my efforts.
Detail of Plein air, Plumbago Bloom, oil, 8 inches by 6 inches.
This is a 9x12 oil painting:
The flax seed feeder is a huge hit. The number of birds that can hang on that thing at one time is amazing!
I'm not sure what the rose colored bird on the right is. I don't see it in my book.
and our Hooded Oriole is a huge fan of 1/2 an orange:
