The Crow cam is providing ample reference material for future paintings. Right now I am picking up about 30 images a day from the feeding station.
Today I began playing with my new motion activated bird camera. It’s going to be handy for getting reference images for crow paintings.

Outsider: MDI Artist Finds Inspiration in All Seasons
A spiffy newspaper article by Melinda Rice about my paintings came out this week in the Mount Desert Islander.
Obviously not a finished piece but it’s in an interesting state so I thought I’d post it
Today: Rain. Areas of fog this afternoon. Breezy with highs in the upper 40s. Southeast winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 35 mph. Just a week ago there was fresh white stuff on the ground and winter was still full on. This was a fun little painting to do. As we head into spring here on the island, the surrounding waters are quite cold and we may yet see some good snowfall although it tends to melt away quickly under the spring sun.
I had a meeting this morning with the folks from the Islesford Dock. My paintings will be there during the upcoming summer season.
