PPF and more...

So excited, just saw that the Featured Artist this week at PPF is Natasha May !!!!  As you know, I recently took her Cotton Candy Girl class and absolutely loved it!  I did it because, although I admire her work, I didn't think I could do it!  Her instruction was thorough and open minded!  Her videos were great and I loved listening to her accent!  She cracked me up with her humor.  It was a fun experience and I love these girls...my granddaughters are loving them too!



Okay so I have taken on this commissioned painting - I've been doing research and sketches on Phoenicopterus, yes, Flamingo's.  I thought I would share my piece as I go...any suggestions, feel free to let me know:
I plan on finishing it this weekend and hope to put "her" up on Sunday Sketches but no promises...might be a day or two later.

I received a great trade in the mail yesterday from Celia Bradshaw at http://adventuresofthestripedstockings.blogspot.com/
We did the July ATC trade hosted by Wendy at Bliss Angels and the theme was Sirens of the Sea:
I love what Celia did.  My favorite is the steampunk mermaid, each time I look at her I see some added detail.  Yes, she shall enhance my journey!  I have a fasination with steampunk but have not had the courage to try it!  Thanks Celia, I love them and the goodies!!!!

wow - computer went haywire at this point....don't know how far you scroll down.

I'm still making the PPF rounds. Your Flamingo commission is coming along beautifully! I'm sure your client is going to be thrilled! p.s. your comments section must have accidentally gotten spaced very far down your page.

Have a blast.

It's quite beautiful! I love the soft colors and the way it is gently taking form.

I think the flamingo is going in the right direction. So delicate and airy! Happy PPF

I am very fond of flamingos - I know God was smiling as he created these huge pink birds. I found out a while back that they can actually fly though it doesn't look possible! I think your painting is wonderful -

I love ALL birds. . .I made a Halloween flamingo out of cloth/stuffing for my witch that rode it. A fun thing to do. "She" painted her flamingo green to match her face, lol. http://jkwart.blogspot.com/2009/11/once-upon-time.html Your painting is going to be fantastic. Blessings, Janet PPF
