So, here it is ~ almost finished! I still have the butterflies, handle and ribbon to do as well as some finishing touches on the flowers and some highlights on the basket. I'm pleased with the bird - first time I've ever painted one in oils.
I'm hoping to have it done tomorrow - will share the final painting with you when I finish it.
At paint class last Wednesday we painted Sunrise & Sunset Echinacea
Elaine had come earlier in the week and did the clay flowers as well - you can see it added on the frame in the bottom right corner.
This was Patty & Sharons first time coming to paint and they did such a beautiful job!! I think they even amazed themselves at how easy it was to do and pretty their frames looked after class.
I met Cindy when she came to the workshop in May with Donna. This was her first class with me although she's painted before and her frame is gorgeous!
Roz had her grandchildren in town and brought her granddaughter to class with her - they had a deal - if she behaved she could get something in the store after class. She was so sweet and quite and played with Clay the whole time.
On Saturday I had a kids painting class and an hour after had a kids clay class! They sure were FUN!! Like my friend Barb said "it's neat to see the creative light turn on when they are learning" you could see it all over their faces.
We painted a sea landscape and they all did such a super job!
Have a quiet week - which I am looking forward to! Need some planning time for the classes I have coming up in July as well as lots of pool time with my boys!
Have an outstanding week!
