March 16, 2011 With all the tragic things going on in the world, it's important that I don't sound like I'm complaining.  But it's been raining here in Seattle.  We're already over a normal March's total precip as we reach the halfway point of the month.  This...

Updated April 8, 2011 (first posted March 15, 2011 updated March 27, 2011) Common Nighthawks have traditionally found urban habitats very amenable. I thought I'd take the iconic Nighthawks painting by Hopper and use it for the background.  I just have to build the buildings up...

March 15, 2011.  In a previous post we described how our Ma Hummer has been through a snow storm and had to endure an exploring cat.  Since then there's been a big rainstorm and a freeze. And last night a windstorm came up that had the branch she is...

We headed down to the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge today.  The air was fresh and the light was spectacular down there. This American Bittern wasn't far from the Visitor's Center.  We noticed that when it saw fish, it got excited and started wiggling it's butt like a cat.  It...

Hi all,  This handsome Red-breasted Sapsucker showed up in our yard today.  And, by the way, Mom Anna's Hummingbird has survived the snow, wind, cold weather and all predators and is still awaiting the hatchlings. (We live on Beacon Hill in Seattle, WA. We don't...

We have an Anna’s Hummingbird nesting in our Italian Plum outside our bedroom window.  She’s about 3 feet across the tree from where she successfully nested last year.  This year it’s a string of indignities.  Here she sees a cat walking under the tree.  You can...

I arrived in Seattle in 1976 and late that winter in ‘77 I saw a juvenile Golden Eagle with a clear white subterminal band on the tail perched on driftwood in the Skagit Wildlife Recreation area marsh near Conway, WA.  Today Delia and I went...

Delia and I and a friend went out to the Snoqualmie Valley to the Stillwater Wildlife Management Area to see if we could add to our state-bird-year-list today. Turns out, we couldn’t.  Our list is at 92, a mid-Feb total that's paltry by serious WA Bird-lister...

Maybe I’m missing something, but it seems to be very hard to get a certain piece of information about the new tolls being installed on the Highway 520 bridge over Lake Washington.  What will the collection-efficiency be?  What will it be specifically in the 520 case,...

Jan 10, 2011.  What seems to have been a success in reworking that old long-abandoned flying Eagle painting (it's been selling!) got me interested in other paintings that I was storing closest to the dumpster, and had given up for dead.  One is a snow at...

In a Feb 1 article on All Things Considered, NPR reporter Chris Arnold  recounted events that have led to increasing desperation among the hungry poor of the world.  Explaining the recent massive surge in commodity prices, Arnold listed as causes the drought in Russia, the floods in Pakistan...

January 24, 2011 I usually don't finish things, just keep dinking around on them.  But I'm in a Finishing Frenzy! [caption id="attachment_344" align="aligncenter" width="585" caption="Anna's Hummingbird in Snow, painting by Ed Newbold c 2011"][/caption] This is a painting I mentioned in the Something New post and it will be available...

A few years back there was a news article on the radio about the Pennsylvania diaspora.  I believe the PA gov't had a pilot program then to try to woo back former residents who had left upon coming of age.  Being a member of that...

  Delia and I were back in New Mexico’s southern “bootheel” yet again for the holidays.  Things were calm down there, perhaps overly so weatherwise.  This weather system shown assaulting the cliffs on the north side of the canyon was only good for ¼ inch of...

  There are many traditions associated with winter weather, Christmas  and the winter holiday season.  Riding in a one-horse open sleigh is an old one.  There is a completely new one here in Seattle and the Northwest. Of course, it's a keeping the hummingbird feeders full and making sure...

Green Tourism Traveling here or abroad? You can make a big difference!
Posting from Seattle Oct. 28, 2010 Delia and I made another trip back to visit her folks Bob & Katie who live in New Mexico's southwestern "Bootheel." I took this shot on the way there--out the window as we were speeding along through Arizona on I-10.

There's been a pond on the far end of Bob & Katie's property, the "Section Pasture Pond," but on the last two Christmas Bird Counts it's been dry, looking like this. Before this it had
Green Position on Cap & Trade is No! Here is the content of an advertisement that I plan to run in the Seattle Times on Sunday, August 9, 2009. Cantwell and Murray should nix it....The Green Position on Cap & Trade is No! The devil is in the details, goes the cliché... Cap & Trade has details enough to make a Hedge Fund jealous. One of the details that terrifies me, a detail that could destroy the world’s remaining forests along with its remaining biodiversity, involves carbon offset credits. Under

Where's Duke? is almost sold out! [singlepic id=16 w=400 h=300 float=center] July 17, 2010. Where's Duke? is a limited edition print of a painting of a Raccoon family I did in the 80s, and it's down to 5 or 6 left at the store. I hate the...

Nov. 10, 2010 This is a new finish on Cats of North America. This is available at the Pike Place store in two sizes as of yesterday. I've also been reworking Warblers of the West and I'll put that up soon....

Oct 19, 2010. It's not the standard advice you hear from the art world, but I have always believed in going back to old paintings and reworking them until they are fully resolved however long that takes. I painted on one painting for 19 years...

I'll teach the seminar on obsessively reworking old paintings Nov. 11, 2010 Warblers of the West. I'm deep in this re-paint job but questioning it at the same time--appropriate for this Seasonal Affective Disorder time of year. I fret about things like whether the Colima Warbler...
