Hello Marsha, Joyce, Geri, and Nealey
thank you so much..really enjoyed painting this one.
ED...lovely warm lane to take a walk in, very welcoming.
HELP........ I do not know what people prefer. The bright daylight photo or the muted evening photo. I need to take photo class's. Or buy a better camera.
First I want to say, thank you Holly for the wonderful photo's again.
MARSHA-your bear is lovely. And your Indian is very good too. I want to know if you were sleep walking while doing these. There great, and done late at night.
FRED-Bruno is doing a good job leading the parade. Do you think he is looking for his honey? Well there she is, he must have promised her a ride to the party.
BONNIE-the hair on your bear is excellent and he looks like he wants to tell us something.
CURTIS-I always love your pastels.
JEN-I love your bear also.
JOYCE-your painting is very modern and colorful.
MIKE-your watercolor sketch is wonderful and so free.
ALEX-I love your bear and it looks ready for the parade. And you pear, small offerings make a big impression and yours does, your blushing pear is a delight.
SARAH-a water color of a painting by Cezanne must have been hard to do. The watercolor of the flame is inspiring and free flowing. Your badgers are a great addition to the fall woods. I really like the painting of you being in Renoir's painting.
NEALEY- you Indian drawing is a wonderful portrayal of an Indian and I agree about the arrangement of the pears and other items. Maybe it was a spur of the moment thing and he didn't touch these things and he just had to paint. You did a good job with yours.
Hi Sarah, your watercolor rooster with the three eggs is lovely.
Geri, great work on your palette knife painting of the rooster - quite a dashing character!
Liz, I love the colors in your painting of the country lane and the way you used them to portray the shadows. So pretty!
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
GERI: I don't know why I posted in the Chatter about your feathery fellow.... but in case you didn't see it, I agreed with Sarah, about using the knife tip for colors of dots and streaks and slashed and cuts. I truly like the guy he is looking quit proud strutting his stuff... around the hens.... any simularity to the artist....

C & C Always Welcome
Liz: I personally like the one on the top because the yellows are brighter to me... but what do I know, I'm supposed to have catarachs removed.... so my color balance may be off anyway. and thank you for the nice compliments.
Hello to Alex and ED...enjoyed painting it and tying it in with the theme.

GERI: ROTFL... I can picture it...... tee hee..
Hello Liz ~ Thank you for your nice comments on my Native American drawing & my Cezanne copy. Your "Country Lane" acrylic is fantastic. I like the first photo with the brighter sunny colors - it's so welcoming - good painting!
Geri ~ Your rooster reminds me of primitive Americana. Looks like it is painted on wood? Framed and set on a shelf next to "Gerti" would make the beginning of a good still life. Rock on!
Comments and critiques are welcome.
Hello, it was just no time for the challenge this month, but I wanted to make a contribution to the bear theme.
Needed some therapy, so doing clay helped. Feeling better now ;)
C&C always welcome
Hi all, Thank you Claudia for your message and photo of your smooching bears great work and thanks for sharing.
