Acrylic on plywood 9x16

In spite of my yesterday's eye surgery, I was glad to be able to finish this painting on time!
It is for VSD March challenge.I would like to paint a more elaborate background, but what to do?I prefer stopping for the moment.

It is like the reservoir with birdseeds, that Alan , my husband,installed and filled regularly(even more) throughout the winter, to feed our young disadvantaged friends.This knack is in front of the window of the dining room..Birds drop many seeds down, he was in order a huge tuft of grass, obviously it is a good manure!!But one morning, I had breakfast, and that do I see, under the guard eating? a big rat, of the size of a hamster, who ran, without hurrying, towards a gallery that he had just dug at the foot of the tuft of grass, to feed without getting tired! If I understood well, of course, it is the seeds which interest him!

information taken on Internet, it is about a fieldmouse, pest.Ma first reaction had been to think, "oh, of a nice small animal", but not, she transmits serious diseases to the man, and eats bushes by the root, and increases fast.But there is a continuation, it will be for the next time...Published by SYLVIANE at address 12:03 Publié par SYLVIANE à l'adresse 12:03

this is a portrait I've begun for several months, I think,I don't know this nice grandma,but I was moved by her expression.
I don't know if I'll be able to paint in the next days, tomorrow morning, at 6am I have to go to Bordeaux, in order to have a cataract surgery, on my left eye.
I cross my fingers..

I have to admit I've never eaten sushis, I am not attracted by them, although I like fresh fish, but not raw.

acrylic 11x14
Zoé is an old buddy's cat , I had not seen her for 15 years, (the friend, not the cat). We spent a whole pleasant afternoon in Paris, on the last week of January. It is my first attempt with a pet, and I was very plesed to paint her.

acrylic 6x7

It should have been our view from the porthole of the cargo on which we wanted to book one of the 2 only cabins, for next June.
Unfortunately, after 15 days or more, of waiting, we were answering it was fully booked.Anyway, it would have been complicated for us, the Atlantic crossing is from Amsterdam to Cleveland, but our first aim is Toronto, so I was obliged to ask, and buy a visa for USA, that is not simple here, yes, we still need a visa if arriving by boat.
So, we'll go as everyone does, by plane..I hope it will be next year, we'll be able to have a cabin on the Antwerpen-Montreal's cargo (it takes 12 days).
