Hi Morgan, thank you for the compliment! I made a composite of two recent paintings and a collection of my pigments so I could post just one image, and spare some space on the thread :) Right now I'm visiting my husband who is working in Qatar, so I haven't painted much but am trying to keep a travel/art journal. The rookery painting is from that entry about the cultural village museum we visited last weekend. At https://www.wildozark.com/katara/
, I have a whole blog post on that day with photos, if you'd like to see. When I get back home in March, I have a quail painting to do, and lots of other work I need to do too. I'm going to try and sell some original art at a festival in May (well, I'm always trying to sell it, but will do so at a festival in May, lol), so need to do a wide range of sizes to have a wide range of prices :D My problem is that I like my raptors best, but those take the longest. People seem to like the barns/sheds and birds like crows and owls best, so I'm trying to do more of the sorts of things with a better chance of selling, too. As for pigments, I need to get to grinding more rocks. Are you an artist? If so, I hope you'll try out some of your local pigments!
