Chickadee with holly & berries ~
that's what we painted yesterday in paint class.
I painted it on a couple of things since I couldn't get enough of the same project pieces.
I added the holly around the rim - think it would make a beautiful Christmas card!
My chickadee painted in the middle of a tray.
This was Lee's first class with me although I knew I knew her from somewhere.
She came to one of our events at the base sharing information about Breast Cancer Awareness!
This was Fran's first class with me at Hobby Lobby.
She had come to the Byron Welcome Center last year and took my peach class.
Fran won the drawing and took my project piece home which she was thrilled about - she said she had a friend that was just diagnosed with cancer (an artist herself) and she was going to give it to her.
We had lots of funny stories about berries and kids putting them in ears, noses, and parents spending hours in the ER because of their kids eating them (or on the line with poison control). Lots of fun and lots of laughs plus a lot of fabulous painting!
EDIT: Thanks for the help on the watermarks for photos - I received several emails and appreciate your help!!
I've had a fabulous response from my display up at the Byron Welcome Center and am continuing to work on stuff to replace items that have sold. I'll hopefully get around to posting those soon. Have a fabulous day!
