Mini Paintings, 30/30, #'s 12 and 13

"Goldfinch and Bluebird"
1 1/4" each, Oil on metal

My little grandson insisted on giving me these metal pins with a chevy emblem on them when I visited them in Texas last fall. I kept them and decided to re-purpose them at some point to put on my hat. Thanks to the DPP Challenge blog this month I found the perfect use for them!
This is part of the painting challenge to jump-start my painting efforts for 2013.
My theme is centered on my travels this winter in my 1996 29' Winnebago RV. Improving and diversifying my painting subjects has been one of the main goals of my travels. My goals for this challenge are to pick up speed in my painting, and be freer in my use of color and brushwork.
This challenge has been offered by artist Leslie Saeta. Link here to join in or see paintings of other artists. I am glad to be participating in this challenge, and seeing the efforts of other artists as well.
Some of my paintings are available. If you see something you are interested in purchasing or would like me to do a commission for you, please email me privately at for details on pricing .
Thanks for viewing!
