Catherine, your quick study of a fading dandelion is very nice.  Simple, dramatic and expressive.

Catherine your little watercolor sketches are fantastic.  My old watercolor prof. in collage always said that there is beauty in simplicity and I think you proved it.YesYes

Marsha, yes, the colour shapers are expensive.  I've bought complete sets but never use any but the flat chisel.  The firm ones are better and you can identify them since they are darker.  I use the real small flat chisel most to work in tight places.  A larger one may come in handy.

Check these items at Dick Blick.  04935-0211 #2 Flat Chisel Firm and 04935-0612 #6 Flat Chisel Firm

Also, I have been planning to order the following to try them.  I have not used them yet.  30350-1002 #2 Double End Clay Shaper and 30350-1006 #6 Double End Clay Shaper.

I'm glad that you enjoyed my demo.  I was pushed into doing that when I had very little OP experience.  That rose turned out well and is still hanging in my guest bathroom.

HELP  I went to mail my cards out today and the file that I was keeping them in is gone.  Those pesky gremlins I guess or maybe the dog who knows.  Anyway those that want to exchange cards please send them too me again.  Joyce I have already mailed yours so we are ok on that.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thank you Jen! I'm going to try to do more dried flowers with those colors. I have about 5 of those little dried sunflowers and they all look different.

Fred, your hairdresser painting confirms what I knew all along.  You have quite an imagination.  This would look great in any beauty salon.  The orange figure getting her haircut is built exactly like me.  Love the eyes on that creature.  The blue-green figure is kind of scary.  Nice painting.
