Two blooms – Watercolor
Sorry that it had taken a while to post the final painting that I had posted Friday, but this artist was in the woods trying to kill a wild turkey all weekend, in the rain, in the middle of ticksville, and only seeing hens and no gobblers. Sounds like ton of fun doesn’t it! Well I’m just crazy like that, but could you sit in your living room and have a really cool chipmunk playing just a few feet from you? Could you have seen a coyote crossing the fields in search of probably the same thing that I was looking for? Or a nice whitetail buck, getting up, walking from his bed area, and eating within 10 yards from you. Box turtle, finches, redheaded woodpeckers and so much more, all this in one weekend, in the woods. Of course your sitting perfectly still, not moving a muscle, so not to be seen by those laser like eyes of the wild turkey, but because your not moving, these other creatures, fly, walk or crawl right up to you, it’s amazing. Yes, it would have been better if I could have dropped a big gobbler with a 11 inch beard and 1 inch spurs, but just killing a bird and not experiencing the hunt… is just killing a bird, and not hunting. This is a 8″ x 10″ watercolor on 140 lb coldpress paper.
