FINALLY... THE BEAK

the beak in all its glory
















journal page
I can't believe it has taken 6 days of trying to post 2 pics.  One I got to work Monday and this morning after several attempts... here is the full look at my journal.  Man, I need help with this computer.  I can't tell if it's me or it!  Okay,  talked with AT&T tech support, it is a combo....asked them to come over and give me lessons BUT tech support is in India.  So much for what I thought was still an American Company.




I want to share another artist's finished work that she too has had hanging around to complete and did!  If you have followed me for anytime at all you know I have a quilting artist friend, Joy!  For my birthday she gave me the most incredible quilt.  It is sooooooooooo me!  She had found these fabrics a few years ago and I had asked her to make me a quilt.  So - it took awhile as things worth waiting for always do- and she depicted me perfectly!  This quilt is Dana all the way through.  I will treasure this forever!

Click on it to enlarge so you can see the stitching.  People on the beach having fun in the sun.  No, I don't do bikinis on the beach but I am all about the Florida Keys!  Margarita's in the sand and pink flamingos!

Sharing with Paint Party Friday - it's been awhile and not much painting here lately but I am trying to get back in the groove!!!  I love browsing through all the incredible work here whether I have participated or not!  Thanks to Eva and Kristin for keeping it all going on!!!!

cheers, dana
life is short, make sure you LIVE it

Glad the computer cooperated and shared your fabulous journal! Computers can do amazing things- like push us to the edge- at least that is how I feel when I spend lots of time sorting out technical junk...

Love the beak. I''m still trying to learn my new computer and its differences from the old one.

Great bird and beak. Computers are so fussy. I'm glad we have art and quilting to keep us sane.

Wonderful work. I love your parrot!

Rodney must be pleased with your rendering of his beak. It's very realistic. It's strange, but I found the beak very hard to do when I tackled it, because it is much more complex than it looks. Worth the wait.
