Things are opening up slowly here in Ontario,
but I am still self isolating.
An interesting visitor to the yard this week.
A male Yellow-shafted Northern Flicker.
I have a lot of time for "arting"
My latest painting
(acrylic on canvas)
Merfy stuck his head in some vegetation on a walk,
and got seedy faced.
A Canada Goose on the river

The days/weeks do blur a bit don't they.ReplyDelete
We too are slowly opening up, and I am largely ignoring it.
I love and am awed by your art. As usual.
I’m so glad you showed us Murfree. I wanted to ask about him, but was a little bit afraid to after so long. I really like your painting. We’re in the same place you are with regard to Covid...our City is opening up a little, but we are still staying home. (So just like you except I have fewer birds and less talent),ReplyDelete
Gorgeous captures of the Flicker! I just love your sweet Merfy, I see those seeds. Your painting is pretty. Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!
Great shots! Love your painting..so pretty.
Thanks for sharing...have a great day!
I'm still self-isolating, too, but finding things to do. Making fabric masks, sewing a quilt, rearranging furniture, playing the piano. Looks like your artwork is keeping you busy.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos. The ones of the flicker are especially striking.
Lovely shots of the flicker Karen. I love that painting. It's very striking with those colour combinations.ReplyDelete

The Flicker is so pretty. I've never seen one here in NC or in OH where I lived previously. Love the lady bug artwork. I have some of the real ones decorating my garden today. Take care and have a wonderful week.ReplyDelete

I am hunkering down a little longer.
