Sarah, thanks for hosting this month. Sorry it took so long to post it today but Howard looked at my computer to check for updates. as it was sitting on ready for me to get to work!  Of course it didn't work properly and froze and did all sorts of nasty things which is why I don't mess with them until I have finished whatever I want to do on it!  Sooooo half the day was gone by the time I got to it!  Anyway here it is enjoy everyone and thanks Sarah!

Hello Everyone,

I chose the 'HANDS' extra theme long before Claudia had been given 'advice' on her Eve's hands, my ref. photos were sent to Jen before Claudia had uploaded her painting!

This is an older wc.

I might do one like this again. I liked the hand pose. Hands need a lot of practice, I hope I WILL HAVE TIME TO TAKE THE CHALLENGE.

C&C always welcome

SARAH ~ The photos you chose for the month are great!  The extra challenge of HANDS is well worth the study.  I know I can use it!  I used to go to the library and copy the drawings of Albrecht Duerer.  Love him!  Then my grandmother presented me with a huge coffee table book of his drawings.  Heaven!!!

Claudia - good WC of the hands.  I agree with Sarah!  Can't wait to see something new from you for the challenge!

Comments and critiques are welcome.

Hello Nealey,

I've always classed Durer as being as great an artist as Leonardo da Vinci/Michaelangelo or any other of  the great Masters...I like all of his work including his woodcuts.

You couldn't have chosen a greater mentor.:-)

Claudia your hands look great.  Very expressive the way the hold the flower.
