HAPPY CHAPPY

Here is a new painting of my curious creatures in  conversational triads. There are a few trumpeter‘s in the picture to remind me of my son who played the trumpet until he went off to college.

This painting is 9″ by 12″ Ink and Watercolor on Arches 300 pound cold press paper. It is for sale for  $400 framed in a light maple frame.

Sunday night was the opening of Birds of A Feather and it was a truly hopping event. Paintings were flying off the walls. I have 2 chicken  paintings in the far right corner of this picture. They are on aqua board.

The show is open until September 22nd so there is plenty of time to  stop in and see the work and maybe pick up a wonderful piece of art. This year there were many chickens, interesting bird’s nests, beautiful bird pottery, cedian painted pillows, bird jewelry, encaustic, a photo of an egret on aluminum- it sold before the opening and someone ordered a second one- and some really cool gulls along with many paintings.

The show is at Kathrine Lovell’s studio at the shops at Mill Pond in Tiverton Four Corners, Tiverton, RI.

Beautiful weather these past few days. Catching many skip jacks, snappers or baby blues depending on where you are from. Had a wonderful swim last night as the water turned a glorious pink due to the reflection of  the sun and the clouds at sunset.

We were graced with company from Kelley MacDonald,

and her husband Tim who took a try at surf casting as we saw schools of   being chased away by jumping blues. those blues provided us with dinner last night and we had enough to enjoy them for dinner last night as well.

  1. If people like birds, they should see this show – it is amazing – and the work is such that there are lots of ‘red dots’ already! Your chickens there are luminous – really spectacular… I am sure they’ll find new places to roost! Happy Chappy is truly a painting that’s full of cheer!
