Catherine I totally agree with Alex. sign it, matt it and Frame it. This is outstanding. I love the simplicity of it. I would hang it on my wall. great job.

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

Catherine- This is a testimony of "Less is More" on a limited palette. Love it.
C&C are welcome and appreciated.
Thank you so much Alex, Marsha, Sam and Sandi! I really enjoyed painting this little flower.
C&C's are welcome.

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.
C and C always welcomed
SAM: What kind of colour shapers do you use... boy they are expensive.
I loved your instructions on WC and I am inspired.... thanks...
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.
I just sent you my address again.
I mailed mine out yesterday so it will be a few days before everyone gets theirs.
And thank you Geri for you compliment on my little dried sunflower!

Jen C & C's always welcome
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.
