Work and Rest - Images For New Paintings

It is still Sunday 30 minutes it will be Monday.   Sunday is usually my day of rest from painting and most other things as well, but I cooked several recipes (well, 3 recipes)  for enough food to last awhile so I will be pretty free to paint the next few days.  One recipe was homemade chicken soup some of which I will freeze for later.  Yes, cooking is creative too !   Yesterday I began two new paintings and hopefully they will be dry enough to work on again tomorrow morning.   Below are my reference photos for those new works.

Lesser  Flamingos

The photo of the Lesser Flamingos (which are native to Africa and Asia) I captured at the Honolulu Zoo.  I may paint it soon, but it is not the reference for the painting I began yesterday; the computer gave me a hard time uploading the correct photo.   The more I think about it now,  this might be a better painting than the one I began on Saturday    :-)

There are 4 other paintings I have begun that are in various stages of development  that I will also be concentrating on in between waiting for current works to dry before continuing them.   I just felt the urge to do some wildlife again .

Wish me happy painting the rest of the week !
