Happy Valentines Day!

Art Journaling - Cherry Blossoms

Craving the colors of spring when the trees are full of blossoms dancing in the wind.

These were done in my art journal, using two water soluble oil colors, burnt umber and alizarin crimson.  Fun and easy.

Signs of Spring

Herons X 20 - on the bank Nicomen Slough
This was only one section, a rough estimate I would guess there was approximately 80 herons out there.

A car came along the dyke and the herons took flight.

Chasing Clouds

Cloudscape 1

Its the first day of my long weekend and i'm out chasing clouds, definitely a nice start!

Cloudscape 2

I found it interesting how the sky was split with the blue sky and dark clouds and the flat white expanse with the puffy clouds.  I like the plane that few into the picture.

After a cloudy start to the long weekend it ended with the sun shining or trying to.

Gone To The Birds!

These culprits were hanging out at the feeder today,  
I was standing and shooting at about 3 feet from them, they were not disturbed by me at all although the woodpecker was keeping his eye on me.
