*My Crows* *My Art* *My Way*

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Hi Everyone! Hope you're well! Thanks for all your support in my last blog post! Means a lot to me!

The other day, I was outside, doing some yard work and I kept hearing a hissing noise. I thought there was a stray cat in our back yard. I looked up and I couldn't believe my eyes and ears. It was the cardinals! Whenever a little bird would come close, they would hiss. I didn't realize they were so mean! LOL! I looked on youtube and I could only get this video. If you watch it, the hiss is made right at the beginning of the video. My cardinals, wouldn't stop hissing! I guess they were very hungry! LOL!

I'm still working on my large painting.
This is how it started.
This is where I left you.
And, here are two more progress pictures.
Big Hugs 😀

  1. It's looking great!
    I didn't know cardinals could hiss. I'll have to listen for them now. We have a lot - state bird here.

  2. We don't have cardinals here in Europe, so I won't get a chance to hear them hiss over here. Your new painting is coming along really well. Have a great day, BIG hugs, Valerie

  4. WOW! That large painting is incredible!! I do not know much about cardinals, but I know for a fact that blue jays are nasty and very territorial creatures! My mom had to be careful with her cat because they actually go after them!

  5. I do love seeing how your paintings progress.
    Answer to your waterbed question on my blog: We bought a waveless waterbed. We had the original waterbed frame from a previous waterbed that we got rid of. After going through different types of bed mattresses that didn't help my back we decided to try a waveless waterbed. We bought it at Big Sur Waterbeds that was located in a bed store near San Antonio. I had checked out the waveless on the internet and it looked like it would be pretty good for my back. I was so happy when I found out you use 1/3 the water a normal waterbed used and it doesn't slop around like the old style waterbeds. It's so much easier to buy sheets for too. We get the Cal-King sheets and it fits quite well. You fill it up and put the conditioner in every 6 months and change the water every 1 to 2 years depending on the water. What keeps it from waving are 2 or 3 long pieces of foam inside the waterbed. I love it because it's great for my back. I don't have back pain as much when I get up.

  6. Birds can be amazingly territorial.

  7. I haven't heard my cardinal hiss, but they are very territorial. The male does sit at the feeder and if I haven't recently filled the feeder he yells. Cheap! Cheap! Cheap! :-D Making great progress on your painting

  8. Never heard them hiss, but this time of year they become less territorial than in the spring.

  10. Big hugs, Stacy! The start of your painting is beautiful enough to be a finished painting on its own. I saw some modern art at the Tate Museum in London that had me scratching my head ~ like a blue square, one solid shade. Huh? Your background canvas is striking enough to hang in that museum in my humble opinion! Of course, the crow and female images you're adding to it are equally awesome! You are such an original! Love your header and also the gorgeous read leaves ~ are they Japanese maples? I'll be working backwards catching up. Take care, my magical friend!

  13. How funny about the cardinals hissing! I have never heard that before. We had a male/female couple living by our old property and they were fun to watch. They would call for each other when they separated. Very loving and loyal. :) Your new painting is amazing as always!

  33. yes, birds can be really vicious to each other, no matter how sweet they look. It's a matter of survival I guess... Your painting is looking intriguing. Looking forward to seeing you finish it! Have a great weekend ♥
