Shoreline Arts Trail: California Quail with Chicks
This week is being spent preparing for the Shoreline Arts Trail which will be held November 21 and 22. I "planned" to have about five new works that have never been shown before, as well as the usual array of birds and wildlife for those who collect my work. However, even the best laid plans can be changed as "life" gets in the way. My family has been visited twice by the Swine Flu, and the kids have had every minor ailment imaginable. We call the new addition at the pediatrician's office "the DeNegre wing", as it was financed by our copayments alone! Now that everyone is well and the sniffles are far behind us, I am in the mad-dash mode to complete as much as I can in the next 10 days. Wish me luck! Here's a picture of my latest bird, the California Quail, which is pictured with five chicks. The piece is 11x14 framed to 16x20, made entirely with commercial fabrics, and the price is $375.
