Love Lies Bleeding

Another plant I love - Amaranth can even be good eating.  I'm not sure if I'm finished with this painting yet..but I think I am.  Again, it was the backlit exuberant bloom and lime green leaves that caught my eye.

Green-winged Teal

I spotted these Green-winged Teal on a walk around Port Moody Inlet.  I was captivated by the pattern of the water against their small elegant bodies.  The painting was sold at the Port Moody Art Association's November 2012 show.

Steller's Jay

acrylic        12 x 12
Steller's Jays are always at my window (I admit, I feed them), and I couldn't resist trying to capture the vivid blues of these aggressive, clamorous and beautiful birds.
