Life Is......

Having several bowls of cherries to choose from...
Nice work done by everyone . Lighting does
make a difference, the two center photos were
 morning shots and the rest were mid afternoon.

Two Poppies

Class work for two poppies.

Original....Acrylic on 5x7 card

Processed through a 'Vintage' app.
Which just means a couple of clicks
and it's done. Neat !

Work in Progress

In the middle of a bowl of cherries
and I neglected to get pictures from
everyone last class. We're learning to
work with texture in the background
and use mediums to extend work time.
We will finish this week and photos of
the completed work will be posted.

Santa Santa

Several Santa's came back to class today 
and we all exclaimed about their good 
looks and a great job done.

Carmen's Santa sporting specs and 
holly over the ear.

Debbie added sparkly sprinkles and

Vickie did such a nice job on Santa's
hair and beard, we knew it would be
soft if we touched it.
