Shake a Tail Feather!


The above video is great- it is Frostie The Cockatoo Dancing To Shake Your Tail Feather! This bird Loves Ray Charles!

Sometimes you just got to shake things up!

If you're familiar with my work you know that I usually do landscapes, but I occasionally branch out into portraits, figure sketches and some still life. I recently started a little quick sketch ( an hour and a half) of Caleb. who is 22 months old.
And I had just finished a still life which seems to have gotten the attention of several folks who came by my studio:

I don't plan to stop painting landscapes anytime soon... but sometimes you just need to shake things up. Tomorrow I'll be taking a writing workshop in Tupelo. I need to improve my writing skills...and who knows - I may shake a tail feather and write a book! I can dream! 


  1. A lovely portrait, and in an hour and a half!

  2. I love the sunlight bouncing off Caleb's head. Lovely work.

    I also nominated you for the sunshine award. Just go to my blog to find out what to do.
