THanks, Linley and Cath. 

It's always satisfying to me to paint the something that has meaning for the recipient.

Mea...I recently gave 'Hope' (girl gazing at a dove in flight) to a friend who liked it. She's posted it on facebook as a personal talisman. I hadn't realized it it meant so much to her, but she's going through a marriage break-up. It makes me feel really good to think it helps her! You are right about personal meaning.

We have a new exhibit coming up in March so I am trying out some different things.

This is line and gouache (Holbein on Strathmore Mixed Media paper 140lb) - Diamond Head. 


I have plenty of time to tweak it.  Any suggestions?  (Except please do NOT ask me to add surfers!)

Yes, Linley, a couple birds would be good. 

Actually, I was just practicing with people, even a surfer.  Getting daring!

Looks beautiful Mea. Great colourings. Couple of birds and maybe a surfer or two...... what a scene that would make!  ;)      :whistle:

Thanks, Val.   
 
I will do a couple of practice attempts and see if I can add the surfers.  Maybe some people on the beach, too.

Since they will only need to be tiny shapes, I think I can pull it off.

Thanks, Win.  Haven't gotten up the courage to add the people yet.

I've been practicing little people to put in some of my paintings as well Mea. I figured if you can do it.... I really should practice and try some as well. Can't say I'm confident about it yet, but will try.  :eyesclosed:
