Les Fleurs

Diane Mannion, LES FLEURS, 8x10" o/c

      14th of the 30/30 Challenge... tomorrow's halfway!  Forgot my hat for yesterday's demo, so stopped at an outlet shop, then found this perfect box to paint for my flower challenge.  Finished this painting and went outside to photograph it in the shade and a COYOTE!!! was strolling down the middle of the street at 2:30 in the afternoon.  Lucky for me, I had the zoom lens handy!  Here are the shots.  Wow!  Totally amazing to see this animal in our neighborhood.  John said he heard them the other night, howling.  We live near huge state parks, so they have lots of room to roam.  It was as large as my 60 pound standard poodle!

Your box and the addition of the little bud vase makes for a lovely painting. How exciting that you were able to get photos of your little visitor. We have had some coyotes up by our cabin...so we're very careful when my daughter and her family bring the puppy up!

He wasn't that little! Bold, healthy looking animal. Neighbors are nervous walking their dogs and worried about their cats. I'm so pleased you like my painting, Claire. Thank you for taking the time to write!
