More Watercolors and a Question

I received an email about migrating my blogs to a Legacy Blogger Account.  Don't know about anyone else, but it won't let me sign in.  I've tried everything.  Any suggestions?
Still trying to perfect the watercolor look.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day!

A Bird and a Trailer

Continuing with the bird theme.
A little while ago, the hubs sent me a photo he'd taken while traveling.  Apparently there was this dilapidated trailer just sitting not far from the side of the road and he thought that this is just the kind of photo that I like to paint.  He was right!
Have and wonderful day!

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggidy Jig

We've been home a few day now from our vacation in Florida and came home to beautiful weather.  It's not going to last long as we are expecting cold, rainy weather over Easter weekend.  The hubs was able to get two rounds of golf in, however.

I've been working on birds.  One of the forums I belong to has an artist who is working through painting birds with the use of DAP, Photoshop and many plug-ins, textures, and papers  I thought I would try this out as well.  I have a long way to go, but I'm learning something new.
In addition, one of the artists that participated in the Open Studio; Street Scenes class I recently attended, let us use some of her photos to play with.  This was a food cart that she snapped while on a recent trip to NYCity.
For those of you who celebrate Easter, I hope you have a nice one.  Have a great weekend!

Our Last Day in Sunny Florida

Boo Hoo.  We leave tomorrow to go back to Minnesota, well rested but sad to leave just the same.  I thought I would post the last two paintings I did for the Open Studio class I was taking.  I'm also posting a photo I took of Joe Mauer during warm up, Minnesota Twins Catcher, that I took when we went to a spring training game on Wednesday.  I haven't had a chance to paint any of them yet, but I did clean this one up.
