Murphy Doodle

This goldendoodle belongs to a friend of mine, we all went for a walk today. Murphy is such a great dog, he looks like a sheep leaping around in the snow.

Old Barrel

A rusty old oil drum sitting in the snow looked quite pretty to me.

Young Seagull

This young seagull was very curious to what I was trying to do, while I was creeping closer to him. He finally flew away, but he let me get pretty close.

For Portrait Party

This is a portrait of Tim Williams, Shitao, a flickr artist that passed away on Dec 19th. I feel as though a light has gone out. He was a poet, an artist, and a gentle soul. His art can be found here:

Found this photo yesterday

This is a photo of my nephew and my daughter, when they were about 5 or 6 yrs, old. They are now 30 and 29. I love this photo, and I thought I had lost it. so glad I found it, it had fallen behind some books on my bookshelf.

For Portrait Party

This is Julia Kay Portrait Party artist Arturo Espinosa, holding a cute cat. It is a horrible photograph, I think because it gets dark now at 3pm, and even though I have lights that are supposed to mimic daylight, they really don't :-(. I did this on construction paper with pastels, poster paint, and pencil.

Loons in the Morning

There were some loons in the mouth of Ketchikan Creek this morning. I don't know what kind, but I think they are beautiful birds.
