Jen C & C's always welcome
Thanks Jen - I really loved this reference, too.
Sammy, #18 is this thread.
C & C always welcomed and encouraged.
Okay, then this is the one that Courtney is looking for.
I guess you can tell that I'm not keeping my New Year resolution. I want to limit my time on the computer to an hour after breakfast and an hour after dinner, but it's hard. You guys are my friends.
Sam/Sammy C & C Welcome
Sammy - I'm with you on that one, I'll bet George could name almost every one of you 'cause we do talk about our friends and things that have transpred duing the day to our spouses.
Holly, this is beautiful. You captured the extraordinary muscular power and action of the wings and neck shown in the photo, and that's very different than the stereotypic concept of a swan drifting on the water.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
I agree, the colors and softness all come together perfectly for this. What a super ptg. to behold.

Alex and Kim - Thanks - I think the thing that attracted me most to this reference photo was the shape and movement of the swan's wings. I was just sort of marginally pleased with my final painting - - but after all these glowing comments, I think I am VERY please with it. Thanks to all of you.
HOLLY, I can't imagine being less than thrilled with this. Can't wait for more! No pressure.
Kim - I messed around with that poor swan's head until I was afraid I was going to murder the next live swan I saw. Maybe I just had my nose to close into it. I'm liking it a lot better now.
