Duke & Boomer
Completed this portrait late Friday night. There was yet another snow storm going outside & it was a good way to keep my mind occupied instead of worrying every minute about Cole getting stuck in the drifts. Cole made it home in one piece (and cursing the snow) and I felt great getting the painting finished. - Joyce Brandon

Wow! I'm so sorry it's been a bit since my last post of a work in progress. I started on this one last week, but was leery of posting it because I didn't know for certain if it was going to be a gift/surprise. But now I know that the only ones who don't know about the portrait are the subjects themselves! And really, unless I send some dog biscuits along, I doubt if the subjects will be all that impressed anyway, LOL.

At the same time our little bunny babies are doing great. All 5 are growing wonderfully. I hope you'll take a moment to see their latest photos on the Sparrow Grass Rabbitry blog... Also we have a regular website for the rabbitry We're very proud of our wonderful doe Cinders. She's taken excellent care of her own and calmly accepted an orphan. Great momma bunny. - Joyce Brandon

Pretty Bird...

This pheasant hen was a pleasant surprise when I glanced out the window this afternoon.
