Cher Ami

6"x8" oil on panel

Here is a smaller painting I did over the weekend. Warming up my painting muscles for the large ones I need to work on.

Cher Ami was the first war pigeon during WW1. I have no idea if this looks anything like the bird named Cher Ami. I just thought that was interesting. :)

Another swimmer. I am enjoying the abstract/realism blend of these water paintings.

4x4 oil on cradled board

Daffy Duck has a word or two to say! 
This is one of a handful of small paintings I just finished. I've been picking up small toy figures at a flea market and painting them.
