Immortalizing The Chippie


"Little Chippie"     Casein       6 x 6"
Nellie and I have a certain chipmunk who likes to chatter at us when we are working in our garden. He darts in and out of the rock wall that surrounds the garden, then he is up the tree and throwing crab-apples down. Nellie has declared an out and out war with said chippie.I chose to paint him. There is a gray squirrel family that lives in our woods too...they are raiding our bird feeders. Nellie is waring with the squirrels too. I will do a painting of the squirrels. But for now the small casein painting of "The Chippie" is up on my website and available.

I also painted a small landscape of an old barn that is down the road from us.This barn was shelter for an old appaloosa horse and a small mismatched herd of cows.I drive by this barn a lot and always wanted to paint it.....so I did.This 6 x 8" oil is also on my website and offered frmaed and ready to hang.

"The Shade Barn"  Oil      6 x 8"


Les and I have been busy painting the house,.....still. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have had a bit of time in my studio, but not enough to get into anything big or complicated. Soon I will be able to......I can't wait!

Hi, I'm June. I've been following your blog and admiring your work for more than a year now. I am a regular, normal person who is looking to retire soon from my "day job" and segue into writing. I self-published a book on Amazon, "Astoria Story."

I have had a children's book in mind for awhile, "The Forgetful Squirrel" but I would need an illustrator. Based on a real squirrel, Patch.

Anyway, forgive me for being presumptuos, just wondering if it might be interesting to you down the road. Best regards.
