You may be interested to know that the first place painting in Saturday's show had to be removed since it is a copy of a famous photograph. Drat! I should have received a second place ribbon.
My new computer just arrived and my computer man is coming tomorrow afternoon to set it up. I don't think I'll be offline for very long.
Sam/Sammy C & C Welcome

Geri- I don't have much knowledge about drawing but Sammy does, so I am agreeing to whatever she said. On my first glance the Lone Bird looks pleasantly inviting. The usage of blue paper is clever in that it works well as water and you will just concentrate on the body of the bird. I think it is well done, only needs small fixing of rounding the bird's head. Love the reflection in the water.
Hope to see more of your work.
C&C are welcome and appreciated.
Sammy- I hope they will reissue the Second place for you and send the new certificate or ribbon or whatever they use to signify your winning place. Good luck.
C and C always welcomed
Dave that is a very excellant landscape
Jim C&C welcomed
Geri the head might be a little flat but all around it is still very good
Hi James-- Glad you popped in. I was thinking about you too. Hope you will join us on painting this month, I still miss the Princess and the Frog.
Hi All. Here is my contribution. I finished it last night but it rained hard and the sky went dark and I could not do a good photo so I waited until this morning when we had sunshine. I took the photo inside near the window where I can get light on the painting but not direct sunlight. So all was well.
Title: Lone Bird
Acrylic on 140 lbs. watercolor cold press paper
Size is 8"X10"
Sorry I could not crop this nice enough, for this size of paper, my camera will not crop perfectly. If I go smaller it cropped out either the birds on top or the crustaceans at bottom left corner. So I had to cross over the line on the left. I used to crop 9"X12" nicely but not 8"x10". I do not own a good software for photo management.
For portrait lovers- For my number 7). Portrait. I am posting here another version of Amaryn. This is Amaryn at one year old that her mom has just sent to me. I think it would be easier to paint than the first one for it has nice background. Marsha how about picking up your pencils to paint this scene? I believe this scene is up your alley.
C & C's always welcome
Thanks, Geri--I like yours too. See, we are like minded, liking someone else' work better than ours.
