A new commission for four paintings of songbirds. The cardinals reference is from right outside my back window, and the cherry blossom reference is from a dear friend, Debra Trent. She took the photos during a trip to Washington DC and was kind enough to share them with me. Check out her beautiful paintings at http://www.debratrent.com/.
This is oil on board and is still a work in progress.

I love spring, especially here in Minnesota. The fields around us are full of new babies, the trees are full of birds, and nests are well underway. I put up my first wren house and it already has occupants! This is my husband, John, with a new baby at our barn. They fell in love immediately and played together in the arena.
