They just got some Alpacas. Not sure why...someone was giving them away, and they said, "Sure. Why not!" So they got 'em. Very odd and cute things they are. The baby's name is Fern. Can't remember the rest. But that baby sure is cute!! And she's the most beautiful reddish brown color.
This is a Tree Face, on a tree in their front yard. Kinda neat hey? The tree is a little bit discolored around the face, 'cause my nephew and his friends shot it with their paintball guns, and then had to scrub it off. Boys will be boys. Shame about that. lol
Of course, I had to get some more tree shots for my tree paintings. Can't just paint the same ol' trees over and over. And a shot of our beautiful blue summer sky. Pretty nice.
And the really fun thing! Baby robins. As I popped my head over the nest, the mouths opened wiiiiiide. But I wasn't quick enough with my camera. Still pretty sweet though. After a few viewings by adults and kids, the robins decided that was enough, and started dive bombing anyone who came near. Of course, it was the boys. Being boys.
And that was my Sunday afternoon. I did try a couple little paintings, but I'm not much good at the en plein aire thing...so I'm not even gonna post them. These pics are much more enjoyable...trust me.
Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!!
