Day 17 of 30 Birds: “Bird Feeder Drama”

"Bird Feeder Drama"

If you have a bird feeder, you know how fun they are. If you don’t have one, get one. You’ll learn so much. Like, blue jays are assholes, sparrows eat like pigs, cardinals are the Nervous Nellies of the bird world and squirrels are more ingenious than you would think.

I’m doing 30 original works this month. The theme for December is birds. All kinds of birds.

An original piece every day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. Write me if you’re interested at john@tebeau.com. Each one is 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.

Any birds you’d like to see painted? Let me know. Recent suggestions include the American Kestrel, a blue-footed boobie, and all the feathered denizens of “The 12 Days of Christmas.”

“First Snow”, Day 1 of 30 (more) Paintings in 31 Days (SOLD)

"First Snow"

A tribute to the haiku-like serenity of that first soft snow of the winter….

The moment doesn’t last, either. It’s only still enough in the early morning, before the wind picks up again. It’s fairly common at night for the wind to die down (allowing perfect, even snowfall), only to begin whipping around in the daylight hours. You have a very brief window to see a moment like this. Except in a painting, say. This one is based on an acrylic that I did last year, which has since sold.

I’m doing a painting each day this month. 30 paintings in 31 days. December’s theme is BIRDS. All kindsa birds. Have any suggestions? I’d like to hear them.

A painting a day, and yes, they’re for sale. And they’re affordable: $99, which includes free first-class shipping. You can order on my Etsy store by clicking here. Check this blog every day (or the Etsy store) to see the new painting du jour. Each one will be 5″ by 7″ on sturdy illustration board.
