Pheasant Series of 3

I worked up a series depicting Pheasant behaviour on the prairie during the spring.  The work is mixed-media...using a method for transferring images similar to developing film.  The chemicals involved and techniques are from Dass...and the results are amazing.  I use Arches 88 paper for the photography...and then I enhance the whole picture using Golden acrylic products.
The first in the series is "The Stand-off"
The second is the dance "Cock-fight"
The third is "Stands Alone"

The colors for their feathers is amazing this time of year.

I have them offered on Etsy.

They would make an awesome addition to any Hunting Lodge...or any decor for that matter..or be perfect for Fathers day.

New Window Display

I have 3 windows (right now) for displaying in.  One is an old entry from when this building was originally build as the Chevy Dealership I think (but need to learn) in the early 1900's.
I hung "Wild Angel"  and placed a displaying table in front of her, hanging from the ceiling are blown glass orbs.

I listed on Etsy today "The Standoff"  two pheasants sizing each other up getting ready to fight.  It is 1 of 3 for a series.

Happy Mother's Day

I have been just terrible about posting these days...or visiting all my friends on the blogroll.
I have missed visiting everyone!

I am beginning to gain (just a little ) in the time department. I opened the store I talked about earlier in the year and there is a LOT to this!...
I am going to begin posting new work as it arrives...explaining the artist and letting everyone see their pieces..they are ALL for sale...just saying... :D
The store will be part of the town museum and updates for their progress will come to the blog pages as well...I sure hope y'all remain interested in what is happening...
Thank you and now to begin catching up seeing what is happening with YOU!
Here is my Logo...we will begin with that...I found a picture of an old stagecoach and sketched it out...
