Killer Whales in the PNW - Acrylic Painting by ARTIST: Kelly Kyle

Posted by Picasa Killer Whales in the PNW. This SOLD for $250.00 in 2009.
Who doesn't love the Orcas here in Puget Sound?  The LOCAL PNW Orca resident pods all have distinct markings on them and unique numbers and of course names too. In this painting, there is an adult male in the foreground with two females and a baby. They are all just swimming off into the sunset. A metaphor of life perhaps...but just the way I like it, in my world.

I was once on a whale watching boat, in the daytime, and the orcas did come this close, actually closer to our boat. It was an awesome experience, that I will not soon forget. Maybe that is why I love to paint them so frequently. This is one of eight I have done. All different, yet similar.

Do you love orcas like I do? Let me know why....at.... blondee7333@hotmail.com
Thanks for reading.

Wood Duck on a lake

I completed this acrylic painting in 2007 - one of my first 5 paintings.
This is a WOOD DUCK - I gave it to a friend, 3 years ago. It hangs in his law office hallway in Fall City, WA. I guess I would value it at about $275.00,  if it were ever put back onto the market.
I used some fun techniques and some great colors. Posted by Picasa

Christmas Day 2010

Christmas day has been delightful.....except no snow....I think it would have been PERFECT if we had that.....but ok...I'll not be too picky. So, heres a photo I like, of SNOW outside...in the Mts. So, we brought in the morning at midnight at the Christmas Eve Candlelight service at Bear Creek United Methodist Church...it was AWESOME....loved it and the people are wonderful. We sang carols and listened to the wonderful news of the baby Jesus....and the story. Our friends John, and joan from the Rousers joined us....making it more memorable.

Got up at 8am AM, made a pot of coffee, a quiche, and opened some presents with our friend Joan. Ate breakfast....enjoyed lots of good conversation. Joan and I did  "hair day". I dyed her hair. Looks great. 

A couple hours before dinner we had wines, cheeses, crackers, olives, sliced meats....preshuido and salami...  and 2 RIP-Roarin' games of Scrabble.... Really fun! Our youngest (Steven) called to wish us a happy day from California, and Merry Christmas... Thanks....

Then we cleared the table....set it for 5.  Ian (our oldest) and Erika, Joanie, Gordon and I .... we set the table of mild elegance....and took the meat out of the oven. PERFECTION! Made the augrautin potatoes...boiled the lobsters.... and we sat down to a most enjoyable FEAST of FEASTS!!!! Dinner of Prime Rib, Lobster and Augrautin potatoes, Sparkly cider and Asti Spumanti....bubbly to wash it all down. YUM-O. Absolutely NO room for veggies or anything else! PERFECT!

A few presents.....and lots of fun, photos and laughter along the way....on a scale of 1-10...definatley an 12! Here's hoping yours was successful and memorable. Happiness and cheer to you, from our home to yours.

Hugs and kisses,

Yogi the Bear as ART in 3D

Yogi Bear 

I can't wait to see this movie.... As a kid, yogi & boo boo were two of my favorite characters. I loved to watch them for hours on TV. The fun and frolic with these two should be fun to watch....and in 3D it should reach out and grab ya! .... Get your "pic-a-nic baskets" and let's go to the movie to watch this ART in motion. movies are ART in themselves...now a days... you gotta love that sketching has turned 3D and fun.
