I'm pretty excited about the invasion of waxwings we're having over here at the moment from Scandinavia - apparently lots seen in areas not far from me in North Wales - all in very strange places - Industrial Estates, streets, superstores etc. all after the berries from the lovely Rowan tree. Gary was lucky enough to photograph them up in Barrow, near Clitheroe at the weekend while he was up there - I missed out unfortunately but we're off on a Waxwing hunt on our day off on Friday - to B&Q in Llandudno of all places! In the meantime I thought I'd do a quick painting of one from one of Gary's fabulous photos which you can see on his blog. Here's a little taster to tempt you................
Absolutely beautiful birds and really hope I get to see them for real on Friday at B&Q!
I've also been busy painting a couple of pet portraits for commissions for Christmas presents so obviously can't show them here until after Christmas but the owners are really pleased with them so I'm very happy!
Have a wonderful day and please leave a comment so I know you've popped by!
