James, I'm certainly glad that you tried because you succeeded. The praying hands are very well done. Hopefully, you plan to frame and hang it. Take a bow!

Well, James aka Jim..you've given me inspiration to draw a hand(s). I sat here at work the last 45 min. and in between things, drew my left hand. I have a start on it and will post it later this evening when I get home. :)
I think your hands praying is just a wonderful drawing and your wife should just love it.
C&C's are welcome.
(No digital alterations please)
JIM those hands a just amazing, you chewed it up perfectly including using the Tortillion or stump gidgets.... I'm sure Albrecht would be proud. This is worth a frame and a signature. Most time if its is Pencil or Graphite you have to spray it with fixitive to protect it from smudging. Jim this is a WOW job.....

C & C Always Welcome
Susan, I almost missed the ceramic fugures on an ornament. What a clever idea. This is very nice with a lot of beautiful colors.
Fred and Jim, when people paint beears and frogs and fairy princesses, it's sometimes easy to forget that those same people are accomplished "serious" artists. Both of you have treated us to this other size of yourselves lately, and—although I don’t want you to stop painting bears and frogs and fairy princesses—it is so nice to see!
Marsha, thank you for posting the photos of the beautiful wilderness cliffs and burros and ponies.
Paul, welcome to our group. Loved seeing your squirrel, which stuck a wonderful balance between too much detail and just suggesting detail; the wash is lovely. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Susan, very good job with a tough subject—painting a scene that is embedded and reflected in a crystal ornament. I looked through a similar ornament here and could see that you caught the refracting light and color and the odd bending of objects very well..
Bonnie, welcome to our group! Your pastel drawing of the copper buckets with shiny ornaments is excellent. I noticed, too, that you picked up on the curve on the upper rim of the larger bucket. That was the “trick question” in Sam’s photo, as it isn’t what you might really expect to see.
James, Oops Jim, I suggest that you go to the top right of any page and click on Edit Profile. Then click on Site Options. Scroll down to the Signature section and type in Jim so that you'll have a permanent signature. You can also add C & C to indicate that you welcome comments and critiques.
Thank you much Marsha and thanks again Catherine and Alex and yes yeah Sam it works
Since hands are now part of the Dec. challenge here is my first rough start of my own left hand. I will work on it during down times at the office as I will need the same light to do the shadows.
Jim, your beautiful Durer hands are displayed in the rotating images on the upper left side of the Artist Daily home page! Kudos!
Wow Holiday Cheer came early,,, today I received cards from Joyce, Jen, Sam, Susan, Catherine. Thank you all. These will always hold a special place in my heart as well as cheering up my mantel.... I truly love them all.
Catherine, great start on your hand!
Keep them coming Catherine
Catherine, your hand is looking good. I'll be watching to see it develop.
