Norma Wilson Original Oil Cow Calf Bovine Farm Animals Painting Art

“Those Eyes”

Spent most of the last few days with a crashed computer and deciding on either the new iPad Pro that is 12.9 inches and a new MacBook Pro. I have two weeks to see if the iPad will do the trick but I am not sure as of now. Any other artists out there strictly use an iPad?

I saw this and had to share. I am obsessed with my phone! Not sure what I think I will find every time I obsessively look at it. Maybe I need to go for a hike and leave it at home. Lol Hope you do something fun this weekend and I will get out and do the same! 😊

Norma Wilson Original Oil Giraffe Animal Mammal Wildlife Portrait Painting Art

Tall Beauty!

Such soulful eyes. Along with thousands of other people, I became captivated by April the giraffe who was due to give birth any minute....for about two months. It is hard to pinpoint exactly when a giraffe will give birth and they had a camera fixed on her every move every day. I found myself watching for hours. I realized that it was kind of like meditation being so focused and there was no sound. There were many times when everyone thought it had to be time because she had all the signs but there were many false alarms. When it did happen, it was well worth the wait. Giraffes stand the whole time and hide their discomfort because in the wild, they could be attacked and their baby eaten. And we think we have it rough! Taj arrived being almost six feet tall and under 100 pounds. He was standing within the hour. Incredible. I now have a much greater appreciation for these beautiful faces and how majestic and strong they really are!

Norma Wilson Original Oil Seagull Ocean Seascape Coastal Living Decor Painting Art

"Standing Alone"

I've always wondered what the gulls do to keep warm at night and when I lived at the beach and would head down to the beach early, they would all be huddled together and very quiet. So I guess sticking together is the key. This guy was photographed in the summer sun so he is happy taking a break from flying and looking for food!

Norma Wilson Original Oil Kingfisher Bird Avian Wildlife Artist Painting Art

"Looking Back"

These Kingfisher birds sure look proud! I learned that many live near rivers and eat fish tunneling into the ground where they live. Or they live away from a river and eat small vertabrae. I have to share the photo below which is very impressive. Quite the catch!
