Birds. Goats and Bears


Sheet metal birds in branches.


Black Capped Chickadee.





Black Bear goes for a walk.

Last June the Northern Illinois area had a very rare visitor. A black bear was spotted in several counties sleeping in trees, munching on tender spring plants and ambling across fields for much of the month of June.
A few people were frightened but most were delighted to have a rather large teddy bear in their backyard. After a while the bear disappeared and was the topic of discussion in chat rooms, bus rides and probably every diner in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.

Painted sheet metal bear shows the route he traveled on the reverse side.

Very cold today, I stay inside to paint
a little house.







sometimes when mixing paint, an image
unintended appears,
do you see it on the palette?


Big sister and little brother always together.
