Deadlines for shows, competitions and my open studio tour are looming. I have to prioritize so the store is on hold–still putting in taxes and shipping. I took some time to work on the amazingly busy Green Heron today. WHAT WAS I THINKING when I chose to paint this! There is so much going on in its feathers it took a while to be able to zone in on the pattern, where feathers begin and end and get the proper ratio and proportion. Whew, I think I have all the major proportion changes made on its back (the head will get larger when I paint it).
I just wanted you to see that I am working. I won’t get back to this till Friday–spending the day with my granddaughter tomorrow–My plans, have this done by the end of the weekend so it can be put it away to dry. Then get it back out for a final stare and touch up before photographing and entering in a competition.
D r u m r o l l p l e a s e . . . I’m marrying two ideas so there are two winners–KKM Artistry–which comes from Karin, with the added tagline idea, Bird Watcher Collectables, which comes from Emily. Congratulations to both of you! Cards are coming your way–once you send me your address.Continue reading “And the Winner IS…”
Wow, I had some excellent response in my quest for help in naming my online store, 19 in all. Some of which I really like, but I’m curious to see what you would pick. So, what I’d like from you are your top three favorites. My main objective is to brand the store with my name and also the bird watching concept, so if someone is doing a search for me or for bird watching my blog or store will appear. But, I don’t want to limit myself to birds either. Do you see the dilemma I’m in? Here’s the list–please vote 🙂 Voting closes on Tuesday and I will make my decision taking your votes into consideration.

Now for the unveiling of a piece I finished Friday–it’s a part of my looser collection and an experiment with a more monochromatic, restful pallet.
