Northern cardinal
watercolors on canson 140 lb cold press watercolor paper

i’m putting myself “out there” on a saturday, the weekend, when more people are on ig, and i’m sharing a longtime secret passion of wanting to paint.
the past couple of weeks i’ve been dabbling with watercolors, creating color and mixing charts, practicing brush strokes, trying pans vs. tubes, using various brushes, papers and brands of paints and basically getting familiar with how they the parts work together.
it’s definitely a test of patience, judgment and steadiness of hand, but i’m thoroughly enjoying the process.
in a couple of weeks i’ll be too busy with guiding and teaching photography to spend time painting, so i’m enjoying it while i can.
tell me if you would like to see an occasional painting mixed in with my photography, or should i start a separate account for it.
have a great weekend, y’all...

The green jay is a favorite bird of mine, as most of my family, friends and students know.
many times when i’m sitting in a blind, i don’t fire a shot because i’m more absorbed in studying them - their body language and movements, colors, plumage, posturing, interacting with other jays and species, etc.
i caught this one in a pose that i really like; everything falls into a circular shape. as i look at the composition now, with the crop i did, my eye repeatedly travels around the bird in a counterclockwise circle. i don’t remember what it was looking at but the head position puts its face right above those little fringed feathers that help form the circle.
it’s not an action-filled photo but a portrait that begs to be painted. i just might have to try that. if i did, i’d probably do a full-body portrait but not sure yet...
have a great weekend, y’all...

Well, yesterday i had the pleasure of meeting “coznlinda” in person. she and her friend elaine were in the rio grande valley for the weekend to check out the area.
i showed them the b****r pond where we met “little buddy” (a wild rio grande cooter turtle) and then sat in the photo blind for a few minutes, without cameras! we weren’t really there for photos but for them to get the idea of what we see and do here on the ranch.
i’ve selected a previous photo of a lesser goodfinch to post because that was the first bird to make an appearance at the blind. normally i would have expected a green jay, but that didn’t happen right away. our little black and yellow visitor was still sporting his breeding plumage; shortly after he arrived his mate made a brief appearance.
my intern zachary gray came awhile later to help me with setting up some barn owl nighttime photos and he took a cell phone photo of us. swipe left to see that photo. from left to right is linda, yours truly and elaine.
i hope what’s left of your weekend is filled with happy moments...
