This bird is called a Great Tit, which is not found in North or South America. It is found in Europe and parts of Asia and Africa. I just loved this pose. The tree that she is clinging to is rather unusual. I can’t identify it. This piece is 9 3/4 by 11 3/4 done in pastels. I wanted to be much looser than I was. I am not insinuating that I can do hyper realistic artwork, but I have to remind myself that I am not a copy machine and not to worry that I don’t make exact copies. I am trying to make myself relax and just enjoy the making of the art, just the way I want to do it. I did rather enjoy doing this one.

It is the middle of the night and I am in my studio trying to get this post done and I remembered that I have not posted any WIP photos of my two oil paintings. They take a long time to dry. It is dark, but I think you can see that I am making progress, though slow. I think I had better get this done and get to bed, although I am not sleepy. LOL! Toby and Mr. Beloved are snoring a duet.
