Hey all who check in from time to time... been awhile, but I'm still alive and mixing colors ;) I've been busy moving, volunteering, and getting back into acrylics this past year. Recently sold my first painting ever, an abstract pour. Guess dA doesn't let me add images to a status update anymore? Oh well.

Yeah, it's my birthday... I'm a whole number older again :). Violetice made my day with an upgrade to a Premium Membership!!! Dance! 

For those wondering, here's the latest in my sketchbook:

Pen-wash-nuthatch-cc by shadoj
Pen & watercolor wash on 4x6" Aquabee (90 lbs.) paper. Red-breasted nuthatch reference photo by Dave Slaughter... part of a monthly pen & ink forum challenge at It's not really *quite* this red IRL, but I'm too lazy to re-scan... or do anything more with the background. Mostly transparent red oxide PR101 & cobalt blue PB28, with a little cerulean chromium PB36:1 + quinacridone gold PO49 thrown in. Prismacolor Premier 0.05mm for the black.

Have a great day, all -- enjoy your sketching/painting/creating!

Sorry for the late response - we have been on the road to Spain...
Just in case you didn't solve the crossword clue introducing the Hawaiian Goose it's also the Nene (pronounced Nay-nay for the bird and rhyming with either 'hen' or 'seen' depending where you live for the river part of the clue) 
Thanks for faving the goose  - really appreciated Jen!                    :ArizonaSunFlower:
