Thank you Nealey,   I certainly wasn't happy with them but when a UFO is just sitting there its usually because I wasn't that seriously into it.   but what the heck....   the NA was in black and white and I was just fooling around with any kind of color....  the crow monster was just playing again with color.   for fun... I just figured.... "Its just paper"    do it.!

Marsha, of all of the media you work with, your watercolors so distinctly and uniquely resonate with me. There is something about them that is so identifiably yours, with such an individual way of looking at the world. Your portraits of the rooster and the Native American are wonderful examples of your beautiful and original style.

Your banty rooster is very nice he has that cocky attitude of a banty. (no pun intended)

Your NA is very nice to a lot of color but the rooster is m y fav.

Claudia, you must be pleased with these results of the firing and glazing of your Smooching Bears. They have come to life. I like that you made them two different colours making each one distinct. I went back and looked at your original post and it is such a wonderful transformation. Good Job.

Claudia, I agree with Bonnie. Making these bears two different colors was such a clever idea. I love the look of them!

Claudia, nice job of finishing your "Smoochie Bears"!  I'm glad they still fit together after firing.   Just in time to include them in your holiday decorations.Beer  Do you celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, because your husband is American?

I know, I know....it is DECEMBER NOW!!!  But I had wanted to do a few more WCs from this month's challenge photos.  They were really inspiring to me, Susan - or Holly!  This is a 5" x 8" WC copy of C. Pissarro's STILL LIFE WITH APPLES AND PITCHER.

Nealey, what a lovely and delightful still life after Pissaro.  You used brighter colors which are wonderful.  I particularly like the yellow wallpaper.  As Jen said, it has a fresh appearance.

Sam/Sammy     C & C Welcome

Nealey, your painting is wonderful. I agree with both Jen and Sam, it is bright and fresh and the wallpaper is superb. I enlarged your painting and tried to find an element I like the best and couldn't pick just one. The apples are a perfect colour, love your loose technique especially for the effect on the wallpaper. Great WC after Pissarro's Still Life.
