I thought it would be good for me to post more of what I’m working on, to keep myself inspired.  Again, if you want to be removed from this list, just let me know.  Here is something I’ve been working on for a while – it’s 12×12″.  Fits with my theme of “movement”.

I’d love to hear from you – suggestions for things you might like to see from me, your thoughts, or just your kind words to keep me going!

  1. This is really lovely. I like the soft pastel tones in the background, contrasted by the beautifully sharp lines of the bird. You’ve definitely caught the sense that the bird is on the wing.


  2. I agree with both of the previous commenters – It is lovely! And, it really does capture a bird in flight. Alexis, I’ve always liked your painting and you are climbing to new heights! Yippee for you! I suspect retirement helps.


  3. Yes this does reflect the bird’s flight nicely. What would be interesting to see is a series, like Picasso would do, different light, color, time of day, but basically the same subject again and again til you see every detail and then finally let every detail go I admire your persistence Lex, you are very unique.

    1. I love your suggestion Sashie. I was thinking of doing this in many different ways, I just hadn’t worked myself up to it yet. I hope to share some of that soon!


  4. Fyi – I checked with Alexis – her commitment was on Sept 17, not October 17.

    But later in October is still fine with me, I hope we get to see some Fall colors 🙂

    A joint birthday celebration 🙂 Yes, that’s good – I would rather be a little cool than a little hot. I would love to see fall colors !

    We seem to be on same page. One thing: I was thinking later Oct.rather than the mid weeks. I believe Alexis has a committmet thru 10/17. After that is fine with us. Also it will be a bit cooler with greater likelihood of color. You okay with that? It is sort of unfair as we started this to celebrate your 60, but now may be there on my 72 (egads!!!)
