On Sunday's post I showed the beginnings from the sketch to getting it up on my easel and working on the background...today, it's finished as best I could [the bird being so small, and the hard copy I had made --well, let's just say a lot of times I found myself looking through a magnifying glass to see more detail---never COULD see his feet clearly] and I matted it and framed it---






[I titled it "A Bird's Eye View"]

  1. Very nice! I'd say you did an excellent job of painting that little fellow - the mat and frame work perfectly, too.

  13. Anni, Nice job--isn't painting such a wonderful hobby. I would think very relaxing (well, except when the painting isn'turning out the way you want it to and it becomes frustrating)!! I know we have a few hummingbirds around but we just don't see them very often. I love the shells in the previous post-- your photos are so clear and sharp. Liked your "review" of the movie too--haven't seen it yet but I will soon. Have a terrific day. Mickie :)

    A SPLASH OF RED

    A splash of red or a dash of blue—
    Which is the color that’s just for you?

    A hint of blue or a tint of red—
    Which of these colors goes to your head?

    Of all the colors under the sun,
    Red is simply my favorite one!
