January 9,10 and 11


Its now the end of Day 11 here in South Australia. I have had quite a few interruptions but lucky for me I have my little "delicious foodies" which I try and add to every start of my painting time. I am only posting to Leslie Saeta's blog every few days too but I am keeping up with the painting.
I visited a large art show today to see three of my paintings on exhibit. Came away wishing I had picked a couple of others to show instead but that's life.
Today I include two foodies and my latest "real size" painting. I am also showing you a couple of photographs that inspired this one. The first shows the huge number of water birds that have been coming and going recently outside my front windows and the second all the Cormorants that land on our Jetty when the weather is very breezy and they need a rest.
Mexican Eggs and Sticky Cranberry & Butterscotch Puddings

Good Morning Goolwa

  1. What a wonderful sight and what a wonderful watercolor! For a time in my life I joined the Daily Paint Work and tried to paint a little work every day.
    It 'been a positive experience, because it taught me perseverance, until I realized that I need to make paintings according to my own pace and size choices after my own heart. Enjoy the rest of the challenge! Congratulations for all!!!

  5. How fortunate you are to live in such a beautiful area, and so rich with artistic opportunities, Lorraine. I always love these bird paintings. Oh, and those are tasty looking morsels. The challenge is agreeing with your talents.

  6. A beautiful painting of a great sight - so many cormorants!! I thought the sticky buns were chocolate covered cherries until I enlarged it to look closer and read more :) Not sure butterscotch and cranberry would be two flavors that I'd like together - but I do like chocolate covered anything! ha ha

You've copped more horror heat than we did you poor thing! After our very hot days we've suddenly had quite a few coolish days - today only 25C! Hopefully you've get a few cooler ones soon!
