Show and Tell

























I painted this bird today.

It's one of Alfred Wallace's specimens from Malaysia.

Specimens...


I haven't painted in a long time.
When I opened my paint box and went rummaging through the brushes for the ones I needed, it was like saying hello to old friends. I remembered the times we'd had together... moments with this one, and that one... the way they feel against canvas, paper... each one's particular character... it was a nice reunion.

I love it! Too bad it's dead. Glad to see you painting again.
