Birds and Travels 2019

Hi Art Lover Friends and Family,

Northern Oriole

Here’s what has been going on in my life as an artist this year. I’ve been working with watercolors and have been focusing on and observing birds wherever I go. I take pictures inside of my mind or with my iPad during our travels and in Roseville. Then I draw and paint them to share with you at my Art page.
When we were down in Florida, my mom and I were looking for parrots. Instead, we saw a big Blue Heron, not too far away from some mullets leaping in the air. When we were sightseeing in Utah, I got my picture taken next to a friendly raven at Bryce Canyon, where there was snow in late May! We did a lot of climbing, including to a double arch, where there were nests way up high at Arches and lots of birds were there. Back in Minnesota, a Northern Oriole was passing through and feeding on our crab apple tree. I’ve seen many birds lately that I haven’t painted yet. Some you may see in the future are ospreys, hummingbirds, robins, cardinals, wrens that have taken over our yard and trumpeter swans and their babies, which I saw with my friend Paula on our silent retreat.
Also, I plan to add how to draw some of these birds at my website. I taught a class at TSE on how to draw birds. It went well. I hope to teach one at InterAct too.

Angels still come to me. You can see some special angels and most of the paintings at this website, or if you come to our Art Show at

Chery’s Andover estate (1163 McKay Drive) on July 21st from 2 to 4:30 p.m.

I hope that you are enjoying your summer.
