Yesterday I went outside to sketch a planter made in the shape of birds. I decided on this subject because the real birds fly away when I sit out in my kitchen patio. Not this time!  I got to sketch a few real birds eating out of one of the bird feeders.

mosaic with kate O'Brien

This is a mosaic I did at Kate O'Brien's class at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas. It was sponsored by the San Dieguito Artist Guild. There is a short video of the other artist's work also.

 This mosaic was not created with tile. It was created with glass and not I haven't put grout on it yet. The size is 12 x 12 inches (wood).

Junipero Serra Museum

Painting with the San Diego Plein Air Meetup Group at The Junípero Serra Museum, in Presidio Park, I had to stop, I was starting to not care what I did to it. I made some new friends and a VERY OLD FRIEND came to visit.

I used Gesso Board which took a little getting used to. It is smooth unlike a regular canvas.
