Hello There Red!
Here are a few photos of a Red-Bellied Woodpecker that comes here in the spring and summer. He is bigger than the little downy woodpeckers that I have spied this winter, eating suet. This guy likes the bird seed that I put out in the feeder. He will eat with all the other birds without fighting, as you can see. He does have an impressive beak, don't you think? But, I would love to see one of those Pillated Woodpeckers that can be twice this guys size.., I've heard. Spring has sprung a bit but the chill is still lingering. I hope the snow that we are expecting tonight won't chase this gorgeous woodpecker away.
I am all moved into my new art studio that I share with a fellow artist. Lisa is an abstract, colorful artist and we are very similar in our likes and attitudes. She loves texture in her art also!
I'm working on a children 's book, drawing lots of illustrations for a friends book about a cat named Creeper. His name is Danny Langone and he has the blog titled, "Ta-duhhh" over in my linked blogs that I follow. He is a very talented and witty author and a good person. Check out his blog. and his books. I am fine tuning the pictures a bit right now and trying out different painting styles . I would like to try water-coloring the illustrations.
also... I am loving the fun of using my silicone nature molds of turtles, frogs, bees, butterflies. I have tried making them look metallic in finishing them but colorful (green, blue, purple, orange) and adding them to hair pins, necklaces, pins.Time to get to work. I have a lot to get going on.
be back soon! KAT
