Civano Artisans Fair March 14- 15

The Civano Artisans Fair is this weekend in Tucson, Arizona.

This is my spot...


...and these are some of the new paintings I did this week.

Acorn Woodpecker by Kathiesbirds
5 x 7 Acrylic on Canvas






In the yard I had a surprise on Thursday when these pine siskins showed up. Until Thursday I had only recorded one Pine siskin in my yard this year. I took a break from painting to watch these sweet birds pick nyjer seed from the feeder. Now it's off to the store for more paint, bird seed and other necessities for the fair tomorrow. I have butterflies in my stomach and I probably won't sleep a wink tonight. If you are in town, I hope you will stop in and say Hi to me! I would love to met you!

I also want to give a shout out to Troy of Ramblings Around Texas. He is not only a blogging buddy but he has become a friend. Troy has taught me so much about how to use my camera and how to process my photos. Troy has been off the blogosphere for a couple of months and I know I am not the only one who missed him. I called him last week to check on him because I was so concerned. I am happy to report that Troy is alive and well and blogging once again! Welcome back Troy and Martha!

Rick said...

Ah so you all have all the Siskins. This is the first winter we have not has them--they pass thru here in early November(Fargo,ND) but, we on the other hand have the Redpolls I must have 30-60 birds a day.
