I started a couple of new paintings yesterday, but as usual, too many interruptions ruined the mood. Anyway, I decided to take a few pictures of my new studio. The large windows overlook the field behind the house and the woods in the distance.
There is so much wildlife here in China Spring, Texas. Yesterday we found a little burrow in the middle of the front lawn. Five baby rabbits were curled up in the nest. One of the brave little fellows ran out and started running in circles. We caught him and tucked him back in with his nest mates. I checked them this morning but the nest is empty. Guess the bunnies are now on their own. Hope they stay away from the other animals that live in the area.
We also have a family of birds that decided to set up housekeeping in a lantern given to me by my daughter-in-law years ago. I hung it up in one of the trees over the deck, never thinking that it would make a great home for the little critters. But the one room, no bath apartment is just perfect for them. There are five hatchlings in there now. One poor little guy got evicted a couple of days ago. The others are a bit crowded in the nest and I hope they're able to fly soon and set up homes of their own. Here's a picture of one little hungry guy waiting to be fed.
