Boomer Finds A Ball...

2:41 PM

....a bright, shiny, Christmas ball!

Boomer and the Ball
4.5" x 6" (11.43 cm x 15.24 cm)
Watercolor, gouache and acrylic ink
     Boomer stood looking at the shiny bauble with a quizzical look on his face. He was glad no one was around to see what he had found. What was it, he wondered. He'd pecked at it to see if it was edible. He knew if it was he'd be feasting like a king for a week. Alas, it was not. Still, he didn't seem to be able to look away from it.
     Pondering what to do with the new toy was turning into quite the dilemma. The snow was falling faster and Boomer knew he'd have to make a decision quickly. He wanted to take it back to the tree he'd decided to call home for the winter, but he wasn't sure how heavy it was or if he could even fly with the thing! Still, Boomer wanted to try. 

     He just didn't want a repeat performance of the situation that had earned him the nickname of Boomer in the first place.....

It would seem I have "cute" on the brain with this adorable little bird just demanding to be painted! The idea came to me just before I drifted off to sleep Monday evening. It was one of the first things to hit my consciousness on Tuesday morning. Boomer was quite insistent about becoming a painting. And he brought some friends. There's at least two more chickadee paintings waiting in the wings (no pun intended).

It would also seem that the obsessive, compulsive, detail-loving side of my painting personality has returned:

I had hoped I had finally overcome this need to worship at the alter of detail. Apparently not!

I'm putting this cute little guy up for sale as I will the others once they're complete. He can be yours for $45.00 plus $5.95 shipping. He'll come to you Priority Mail in the US. If you live outside of the U.S., I'll see how quickly I can get him to you for the same amount of money. If you decide to purchase Boomer, you'll also have the right of first refusal on the other two paintings.


Thank you!!
