Female Cardinal in Winter

This beautiful Cardinal was in my pine tree, trying to keep warm during this winter storm here in Minnesota.  The photo was taken right outside my bedroom window.  Amazing what these birds must put up with in the frigid months of Winter.

African Barbet and Butterfly

Love the background in this one; using Corel Painter, I used special brushes to achieve this look.  Butterfly and flowers on branch are stock images found on stock sites.

Black Collared Barbet

This is another photo given to me by my friend in Africa – with permission, I painted it. This Barbet is actually called the Black Collared Barbet.  The grass, Tree, Sun, and butterflies all either hand painted or came from stock photo resources.
This was another fun one to do!

The Barbet

This photo was used with permission from a friend of mine in Africa.  He took this photo in his own yard.  I just had to paint him!  Leaves came from a stock source, as well as the bee’s I’ve added.  Painting this one was a LOT of FUN!
