Karen the motorcycle painting is wonderful, you must be very proud of this piece.

Hello Jen,

thank you for the wonderful march gallery. I feel bad not taking part much last month.

No, the window is not done yet.

I was busy with various things. Most of them are fun. One and this one deals with art is, that I was aked to help paint some eggs for the easter fountain in town.

All eggs are blown out (hints, a few break every year) and handpainted. The pictures I post here are from my camera a couple years ago, so none of the eggs are painted by me. The guy who painted these is over 80 now and he wants some younger people to keep the tradition going. I  will post one of the eggs in the april challenge, I believe that will fit the theme.

Jen, I also love your clay work, th dragon looks like a friendly fellow.

I did some clay work myself and totally got carried away with a ballerina princess. She is in the kiln right now.

Hope to be back soon to post more

 

C&C always welcome

Claudia thank you for the comment on the motorcycle painting.  Wow that fountain is fantastic.  My cousin used to paint pysanka eggs and I always wished he'd teach me.

You are welcome Sarah!

Well I did a bit more on the dragon. You probably can't see much. He didn't release easily so I am letting him dry and get leather hard so I don't risk knocking bits off him. I have no idea if the egg is going to support him without the mold! Hope so as I quite like him!! Also  I need some moisture in the egg to fix any outside cracks and such! I am going to a party instead of art on Saturday (gasp) so wont go back until Monday. Hopefully this round of spring thunderstorms wont blow us all away. Ahh Spring in Arkansas!

Claudia, wonderful to see this traditional egg display. It is good that you are getting involved to carry the tradition on. I am looking forward to seeing your eggs for this year.

Jen, your dragon is really looking good. Be careful with the storms. Our weather today is to be freezing rain, so dangerous driving conditions and I don't suppose it will take away much snow. We have many birds coming  back now on a daily basis so Spring has to come now.

Bonnie, thanks.  The storms gave the weatherman some excitement but really we had more thunder and a lot of lightening keeping me offline but fortunately we had none of the nasty tornadoes or hail. Then I was busy this weekend. I hope to get some sketches done if Jinx behaves!!  

You stay warm and I hope you get rid of all that ice and snow soon! 

Jen C & C's always welcome

Jen, your dragon twisting around in the egg does look complicated. Looks like a big project.

I got my last pottery project today. This princess ballerina  weights 4 kg. I got carried away on that one.

 

C&C always welcome
