This is the best of them:
So perfectly posed against the blue sky at the tip of the yucca tree.
Now to get the rabbit! I guess the hawk and I have the same plan but different motivations!
I have done a little more painting in the past week. This is an ATC ..."Shep"
This is another of my farm and farmhouse views, that I love to do. This is also an ATC.
Finally, this is Shelter Cove, near San Francisco which I did for Virtual Paintout. To join this challenge, the owner of Virtual Paintout determines some place in the world each month and the painter who participates, must choose some view in that general area using only Google Street View, (no photographs allowed) and paint it. The location for February is San Francisco. I haven't decided whether to enter it or not, -- some of those who participate are pretty classy artists. If nothing else it did help me to become familiar with Google Street Scene.
