Join me on my journey as I create visual art in various media including acrylic, pastel, pencil, watercolor, and mixed media as well as ceramics and needle felting. I am also writing and illustrating a children's picture storybook. Regardless of the medium, my subject is nearly always animals!

The Barn Swallow is Finished
Here's the finished barn swallow painting sitting in a frame. The differences from the last photo are small but, hopefully, important. Mainly I've lightened the sky holes in the background and darkened the lower portion. On the bird, I lightened the shadow under his left wing, deepened the tips of the tail, and worked more on the feet.
The barn swallow is the only swallow with a deeply forked tail, which I think is so elegant.
