I know I looked at the recent works in progress a number of times and thought I'd commented. But I see not! In any case nice to see them all. It will be interesting to see how they all develop so keep us posted.

Recent efforts

Greetings, I don't have much to show except for these new in progress works. I was looking forward to getting alot done this winter but have been slowed by trauma to the eye causing a torn retina. I work with invoices all day and by the time I'm home it is very tiring to look to draw. Makes me value my eyesight all the more. The doctors say the eye should heal/clear up in about six weeks. Seasons Greetings to all! Thanks for looking. John

Update and some fun

I know I'm slow but a little progress is better than none. The moose is from a Bob Kuhn painting that I would love to own. That will never happen! So I decided to do an interpretation of it for my office. Copying it is not the goal, in my own way I'm taking my hat off to Mr Kuhn. His brush work is amazing, powerful and quick. I wish I could have met him. Thanks for looking, John

Beautiful work John. Intimate, detailed and full of life. Hope the eye is healing well - scary injury for anyone but as an artist it must have been very traumatic.

I particularly like the pencil sketch John. Hope your eye is coming along alright. That is a scary injury.

Wonderful pieces here, John! Best wishes for your eye injury...I hope it comes around quickly and fully. All three of these are expertly rendered - inspiring stuff.

Update

Thanks to all for looking and who commented. My eye is healing nicely and is about 75% clear. There is still a transparent floater that I have to work around but my depth perception is up and running. I hope to spend quite a few hours at the drawning table and easel today. Birds with antlers? Well the name of this thread is Great Horned Owl! Thanks for looking. John

Rocky Mountain Way

I finished something! I hasn't happen very often lately, so it seems like a big deal to me. My last post has some things I did when I was a youngster. I messed up when I posted it, and did not mention that. Thought it would be fun to post some things that seem like lost memories to me. I've been enjoying the new works posted here, it is always fun to check out whats new. Thanks for looking. John

Hi John, Rocky Mountain Way is a beautiful artwork as are your others. The Elk's eye seems to look right through you. I love it. I hope your eye is coming around.

Masterpiece! It's such a great joy going through your works from the beginning of this thread. It's also interesting to see how much you have improved from the time when you were young.

Thank you Steve and Ayuwat for your comments! My eye is usable but not fully cleared up. Time will tell on how it ends up. The Baikal teal is one duck I would love to see in the wild. I like the the pair you posted on your blog Ayuwat. Nice work. Thanks again for looking. John

New efforts

Greetings! Here are some new paintings. The Wood Duck is done, but I may do another version of it with Maple leaves hanging over the bank. The second one is from a Francis Lee Jaques scratchboard ink drawing and in progress. If he ever did an oil painting of it I have not been able to find a photo of it. It is one of my favorites of his. The third is in progress also. Thanks for looking. John
