This is from a photo I took while in Taos at a workshop. We were told to go out in the morning and find shadows. The painting took a little more than a day. I've tried painting her several times, each being a wipe off until this time. It was fun.

Taos Magpie #2

This Magpie landed in the courtyard of a house I was renting with several other artist. The magpie was accompanied by several other magpies. Fortunately, they were very receptive to having their pictures taken (unlike the crows of Taos).

What character these beautiful birds have.

Today, I finished painting this study. Just so I could feel that I had accomplish a "Painting a day".
