ALL THE WAY FROM SPAIN


My friend, Teresa Palomar Lois, sent me this lovely little surprise froggie on a calla lily. Jerry's photo was the reference and a group of us challenged each other at times to paint something together. This was one of those. Of course, mine was horrid (this was 2-3 year's ago and I'd only been painting 3-4 years then and didn't know how much I still had to learn - and still have to learn!). Teresa has always had a knack for watercolor and drawing. She makes it do her bidding (although that doesn't stop her from complaining a bit at times - we all are allowed to whine sometimes). She is one of my dear friends, even though we've never met in person.

Hop on over to her blog and check out her stuff - she's a keeper, that's for sure!

I thought this was just a beautiful flower until I read the post and then had to really look for the frog! Neat painting!

Beautifully painted flower and background. Like Deb, I did not see the frog immediately...it's cute!

Pam Johnson Brickell said...

This is a beauty! Lucky you!

Thanks, Deb, Christiane and Pam! She does beautiful work, doesn't she? And it's always more beautiful in person. You should see the Tara (a Buddhist goddess of wisdom) painting she did for me (that now sits on my altar)!

LOL I'm a whiner but you love me anyway so it's ok! [[[hugs]]]

Yes, I LOVE you anyway - we're both allowed to whine a bit now and then :) hee hee
