Sailor away.


























This weeks theme "Early" made me think of this picture I painted from an old railway poster from the 1900s.
Plus an old song, "Early one morning, just as the sun was rising, I saw this old guy dancing, skipping down the beach."
Some of the words are not from the original song, just in case you were wondering.

Coopers Hawk


























This Coopers Hawk sure looks fearless, so I thought it fit this week's Illustration Friday theme. We see this bird quite often around the bird feeder, although we have only seen it take one victim over the years we have been watching.

Winter cocoon.




















My interpretation of this weeks Illustration Friday theme "cocoon".
This alpine hut in the West Kootneys of British Columbia would seem to be a cocoon from the winter storms, and cold nights.

I don't know what I did to deserve being picked for this week's "Pick of the Week", but I would like to thank all the people who have sent me kind messages, not just for this last submission, but over the last year or so. Thank you.
