I drove out to Deb Ward's yesterday and spent the day with her and Sharon, celebrating Deb's birthday (belated - it was the first time all 3 of us could get together). We had delicious Graeter's pastries for breakfast and dessert and fried chicken and Waldorf Salad for lunch. Yum. (I scared up about 1/2 dozen wild turkeys on her mile long drive - I love seeing nature I don't normally see around my house.
I didn't take anything new to work on, but took 2 older paintings I thought needed some more work.
I'm pleased with this one.
I'm not that pleased with the second one - the plate just isn't right and, as Sharon said, the background doesn't quite fit. So I may do it again from the beginning and rethink it a bit.
But guess what Sharon gave me? My very own personal crow! ha ha She said she wants to see him in all my paintings from now on!
Thanks, Sharon - I'm trying to find a good spot around the house to perch him and have him watching over me :)
It's made out of some hard foam stuff and painted, fuzzy feeling to the touch, and quite large, so he makes an impression - now to just find the right spot for him to live.
