"The Mourning Dove", 4x6, acrylic

My latest painting, The Mourning Dove, inspired by all the dove that live here at Mourning Dove Cottage.

And......the beginning of a new painting of my old garden table in the back yard. Here is a photo (to the right) ~

Here is the start.

I love your dove, he is so beautiful. I hope you had a fun day at the festival and sold a lot.

Beautiful. I look forward to have - one day - enough spare time to paint again.;))
Hope your 4th of July in Raleigh was lovely.

Your dove painting is beautiful Donna. I love the picture of your garden bench with the sunlight filtering in. Can't wait to see your painting of it!

Donna, your painting of the dove and your garden bench setting speak of me of quiet and beauty.

So lovely, Donna - the way that you captured the light reflecting off its feathers - so life-like! You know me ... I love step-by-step painting!! Keep 'em coming! Can't wait to see this new one come to fruition!! :)

Wow! You are talented. But I still miss the old "Orange" mug banner... it brightened up the whole place.

I wish I had your talent. Just beautiful. Mimi

Beautiful painting Donna. I think the Dove were very smart to choose an artists garden as their home. It's early in the morning, and I can hear the Dove cooing outside my studio window :-) Your garden table will make a gorgeous painting too!
