|Slim, Shorty And Lulu Gone Wild -Copyright Leada Wood 2013|
Slim, Shorty and Lulu gone wild came about after a wonderful family outing with the Kids and a trip to the circus. I had not been to a circus in ever so long...wasn't sure they still existed! Oh what a grand time we had and wonderful ideas began spinning around in my head. I love to paint my goonie birds but have not done so for a long time. The sparks began to fly and away I went to my drawing board and started this adventure. As you can see I became a little carried away and went over to the wild side! It was a fun ride while it lasted.
This is a close up of Shorty ... a colorful little bird!
This is Slim...that bird is up to something! I can see it in his eye! Maybe he wonders why his pal Shorty is standing so close to his gal Lulu?
And this is Slim and Lulu...as you can see birds of a feather flock together and Slim has nothing to worry about! I can see that Lulu only has eyes for Slim. I hope you have enjoyed my little bird brained tale...I think I see more adventures of Slim, Shorty and Lulu in my future.
This painting is 16x20 transparent watercolor on canvas and is available. Please contact me at www.leadawood.com

|MOON FLOWERS BY LEADA WOOD©|
This one has been a long time in the finishing stage...thought it was done and then did a lot more to it and finally I think it is done!
My mom and grandmother always had moon flowers, ever since I can remember. They only bloom at night and sometimes when it is a cloudy morning they stay in bloom. I don't know why I have never planted them, maybe it is because I know they are poisonous and there are too many little flower pickers around our place. I think I may consider planting them at a distance where the flower pickers or llamas can't get to them. I am ready for spring!
This painting is 22x28 transparent watercolor and is available.

This little watercolor is only 5x7 with a limited palette quickly done. TWEET THIS!

This is an older painting that I always liked. It is a Latex & acrylic on Arches watercolor paper 22 X 30. A reminder of what Christmas is celebrating. Birth of Christ that brings joy to all christians who believe.
