Two small paintings by Erica Chappuis

Many of Erica Chappuis's paintings are huge. These two are quite small. They are not distorted, but I took them with a wide angle from an odd POV.

No Longer a rarity!

Remember when geese were special and we drove a long way to see them migrating? Now they live here year round and make a pest of themselves, but I still enjoy seeing them up close and personal. (Click on image to view larger).

Detroit Skyline in January

This is a manipulated photo. The original was very dark, drab and grey--which is what the day looked like, but with a hint of green and purple in the sky--I went with that. The gulls were really there, but farther away--they weren't much bigger than sensor spots. I thought for my first post of the new year, I would make something different. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I am just back from a trip to NY and probably have catching up to do, so please be patient.
