Taxi Driver?

Are You Looking At Me?, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
I found this little guy behind a Taco Tico. He had a few friends with him but he was looking at me, eyeball to eyeball. (Or camera lens!) I could just hear him thinking, (in a De Niro voice) "Are You Looking At Me?" I know the quote is actually, "You talkin' to me?" but this is fantasy, right? :-)

Flight Of The Crow

I Believe I Can Fly, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard
I thought this guy looked like he was an ever vigilant guardian over this field, eyes scanning the horizon. I caught him mid-flap with my camera. I love how his head is all encased within his body from this angle. He is a very confidant crow so I named this painting "I Believe I Can Fly".

Jump In!

Black Birds Can't Jump, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
I found this crow in the parking lot of the mall in Manhattan, Kansas. It had snowed a few days earlier and there were little spots of snow cover left. This little guy was walking along and just hopped over the pile of snow. He looked so cute with his wings back, just barely aloft! So here he is - "Black Birds Can't Jump."

I have to say, "Thank You!" to Leslie Saeta and her 30 in 30 challenge. There are so many talented artists participating! And the comments have been really wonderful!

It's A Bird, It's A Plane!

Who Needs A Cape?, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
The look in this guy's eyes was so perfect. With the wind under his wings, his pose looked like a superhero to me! This painting's name is, "Who Needs A Cape?" Holy black bird, Batman!

You Know How To Whistle, Don't You?

Put Your Lips Together And Blow-Bogey & Bacall, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
This couple looked so protective of each other, like a pair of lovers from an old black and white movie so I named them "Put Your Lips Together And Blow-Bogey & Bacall." She looks like a strong female even though her mate is there to back her up. I am woman, hear me roar!

A Female's Perspective

Do These Feathers Make My Butt Look Big?, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
This crow just turned her head and looked at me. I swear she was asking this question, "Do These Feathers Make My Butt Look Big?" I think she looks fabulous, don't you?

Boogie On Down

The Electric Slide, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
We found this crow behind a restaurant hanging out with a bunch of other crows on their dumpster. He started scooting along the edge and it looked like he was dancing! So I have named this painting, "The Electric Slide." Boogie-oogie-oogie 'til you just can't boogie no more!

Java Juice

Is That Decaf?, 8x8, Oil Painting on Hardboard, SOLD
I took the photo of this little guy in Manhattan, Kansas. He was standing at a stop light looking like he was waiting to cross the street. There happened to be a coffee cup standing next to him and he seemed to be considering whether he should have a sip! It was just too precious not to paint.

I have committed to doing Leslie Saeta's 30 in 30 for the month of September. I'm already a day late (actually several) and a dollar short :-) Anyway, here is my first submission and it's kind of a cheat because I didn't paint it today but I did paint it in a day. I have had family in for my Featured Artist Exhibition and have not had the chance to get in my studio. I will do better tomorrow!
