Wolves

Hello!

While we were on vacation a few weeks ago, we visited the Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve, to see their resident wolf pack and rescued moose. It was fun watching their 4 wolf pups playing!

Enjoy the pictures!

Cottage Week

Hello!

I forgot to post all the photos I took at our recent vacation! I will post them in a couple different posts, as I took a lot of pictures at a Wolf Reservation.

Enjoy!

White Tailed Deer in Acrylic

Hello!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! I unfortunately lost my job right before Christmas, but I see it as an opportunity to find a job I really enjoy, and to focus more on my personal artwork and business! I am always accepting commissions or requests for  prints! Feel free to email me (lydiajoypalmer@gmail.com) or contact me at my Facebook page! I also have an online shop with prints, bags, shirts, phone covers, and more!

Yesterday I completed a new painting! My family and I had an up-close encounter with some “wild” deer at a local park, so I took lots of photos then, and decided to paint one! I will probably upload the reference photos soon!

Here are my steps and the final painting at the bottom! Thank you for looking!

Resident Owls

Hello!

We still have Eastern Screech Owls living in our backyard! Usually they are hanging out in our Blue Spruce tree, but lately they have disappeared, which hopefully means they are sitting on eggs somewhere! This morning my Mom woke me at 6:30 to take photos of the owl hanging out in our birdbath! The only way I won’t mind getting up at 6:30 is for animals and photography! The owls are so cute, they don’t have much fear of us, and just stare at you when you get close. Thank you for looking!

Hello!
Last cottage post! Our last day at the cottage, Dad and I went on a canoe paddle, hoping to get some good Loon photos. On our paddle however, we ran into the resident beaver pair of the lake! We followed the one beaver for quite a while, and I got some great shots of him. On the paddle back we ran into the Loons, and floated around them for a bit as well. I feel very lucky to have the chance to spend a few days at the cottage and getting up close and personal with so much great wildlife!
Thanks for looking! I will probably post a random art dump next!
