NEW WORKS FROM THE STUDIO OF ART BY WENDY
|THE NUTHATCH - graphite, 4.5 x 5.5 - $130 unframed|
On this dark dreary day this little nuthatch provided me with some sunshine. He (could be a she) was hopping from tree to tree in the backyard a few weeks ago and I patiently followed him with my camera. It is incredible how fast these little guys flit and flirt from tree to tree. I was madly clicking away in that wonderful setting that lets you take fast action pictures and hoping to catch a few good shots. I was pleased to capture this one, the classic Nuthatch look, standing upside down on the side of the tree looking out at the world. The light was good and his colours really stood out. He has now joined my growing collection of visitors to our backyard feeder.
My little Nuthatch along with quite a few of my other birds will be part of the show next week; Paints n' Blooms, Friday, Dec 7 and Saturday, Dec 8, 10-4pm. at West Coast Garden Center, 1420 172 St. South Surrey. Myself and Audrey Bakewell are the featured artists. The show is in support of the Alzheimer Society of BC. We will have free art demos on Friday, Dec 7 - 11:00 Bringing Animals to Life in Graphite with Wendy Mould and 1:30pm Painting on Yupo Paper with Watercolour with Audrey Bakewell. On Sat. Dec 8, 11-2pm there will be a Volunteer Facilitator from the Alzheimer Society of BC with information and support on the Society's Education Series and Support Groups. Come join us. If you miss the show don't miss the poinsettia show at the Garden Center, last year they had 60,000 plants and this year's display will be just as spectacular!
As usual cards and prints are available of all my work starting at $3.50.
