Wow, that's a lot of ACEO's! Be careful, they're addictive.

Hi Floblue! Nice to see you!

Re: Challenges and Smalltalk for Autumn of 2018

Thank all!

I've been watching hummingbirds, they are so possessive at this time of year, I watched one chase a monarch butterfly then a couple of them were chasing the finches. It was all very interesting, they are such cranky little things. I keep getting sidetracked watching them.

Re: Challenges and Smalltalk for Autumn of 2018

Yes, I watched some hummers this past weekend as we took off on a 5 day holiday. They'll even run off other hummers trying to hog the feeder not to mention the poor finches who are eating seeds from their own, not bothering anyone.

Here's one of the barn swallows, done last night before packing up to return home, watercolor on Canson 140 lb cold press paper. Thanks Dave Slaughter.

Hellloooooooooo! everyone.

So many beautiful picks. Kay I wish I could do watercolor like.. I love that bird.

I made a couple of ATCs yesterday, but very different from the subject matter here. So I thought of you all.
