We had a bad week of FREEZING weather.. I had to bring in the Hummers food every night so it wouldn't be frozen in the morning. I have found that Hummers are the LAST to go to bed at night and the FIRST to get up in the mornings, almost before the sun comes up. So I waited till it was really dark to bring it in and tried to get it out there before dawn but I didn't always make it and even tho it was still darkish out, there was this angry bird in my face hanging in mid space flapping those wings so they were almost invisible, wondering where HIS food was. :)) Sometimes even landing on the feeder as I was putting it on the hook. So I had to capture that morning fiascal in my journal and also how the Hummer would sit on the rose bush below guarding HIS food all day. :))
This is an Oil painting of a Humming bird that I did years ago and sold.
My painting hanging in the Art Center show in town.
The Reception was fun and crowded. So I only got this horrible close up photo taken by my painting.
I was in the hallway and it was close quarters here. but its in a nice spot that can be seen often and will hang until the end of February.
You can see how cramped the Hallway is. Con was checking out the Art around.
There was some nice work here. This King Salmon was done by a Friend of ours.
The photo was taken of the fish at our fish ladder in town. The Salmon come up to the window and you can get a good view of them.
He had two other wonderful paintings in the show too.
|Up close and personal here.. He is reading the tags by the paintings.|
Con checking out more paintings and the food.
I loved these Cows.
Also love this Farm scene.
The Art Center is in an OLD Red brick building that was a Hospital for the wounded in WW1
It has lots of History. It used to belong to the Veterans hospital in town but was sold to be used as the Art Center for the Umpqua Valley.
