Well, I was busy this past year. But everything has come to a screeching halt. Screech isn't an appropriate word. It's not a red-light kind of thing.
Since I don't do Twitter or Facebook I figured I'd better start blogging again. I had thought of starting an email/newsletter, since I've been told it's a good thing to do. I can only go by my own reaction to newsletters. At first I'm intrigued, then hope I'm not being hustled. But I did sign up, didn't I?
I think there's enough exposure and information on my website.
I'm always pleasantly surprised at how often I have visitors, and especially, the range of countries that visit. Thank you, Google Analytics.
This was painted last fall and shown in "Art in The Armory" during Easton MDs' huge and crowded Annual Waterfowl Festival. Happily it sold, but I was kind of sad to see it go so soon. It was fun to paint, I jumped in initially with a sponge, which is not something I recommend for the faint hearted. Anyhow.
The Waterfowl Festival is supposed to celebrate nature, waterfowl (duh), sports that include shooting said waterfowl, stuff like that.
I happen to enjoy painting sea gulls. Although mine were usually bay gulls. (sorry). It seems that they're not considered Waterfowl. It also seems that they're not targets. Endangered? I shouldn't think so. I asked around and finally learned that they taste like fish. Is that such a bad thing? There are probably a lot of gulls that taste more like Happy Meals. Something for everyone.
