We have missed your posts. No one paints birds the way you do. This is your signature.

Jus noticed I've been calling you surfergirl...where did I get that? Still doing the birds, and I've always enjoyed posting on WC, time is sometimes hard to find!...I always share it at workshops!

Ha, Mike! You're actually right, in a way. We're a surfing family. It began in the 60's and continues with our offspring. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: You've seen it on FB.

Beautiful...all the things I aspire to...lively, illusive, yet subtle!

Mike, loved it! The strokes and colors that make the bird look diaphanous, the quick strokes, give an idea of freedom to this painting. Reminds me a little of some Chinese drawings that I saw.

This is wonderful and incredibly masterful. So much so that I've just visited your website to enjoy more of your work.

Mike does such (apparently) simple bird studies. Well one day I tried it too - NOT! I have a whole new appreciation of the complexity of these simple drawings! You ARE the master!

Love all the paintings I have seen of yours the looseness with a splash of detail in the right places. Love it.
