Thanks, Sharon and Patricia.  I am having so much fun doing what I like.  Would never have guessed I would be an artist!  Yes, I can actually say it now!!!   I am an artist!!!

Zilpa,

We understand that you have lots of responsibilities with your business and cannot hang out here as often as we'd like.  We are just so happy when you pop in to give us up dates and share your work and success.

You, my dear, are the true inspiration -  a role model for me.

Another Artists Reception.  This is the New Year Invitational - by invitation, then juried entries.  Same "Major Mynah" that was in a show a few months ago.  I had nothing new that fit the theme.  Did get compliments on my first attempt at painting with a palette knife.

Thanks, Pinuccia and Bill.  I love going to art receptions. I meet the nicest people and get to interact with other artists and art patrons.  It's a real morale booster to be in such a positive environment.  Plus I get the opportunity to get dressed up.

Thanks, Dennis.  I had a watercolor in the show, too.  A rooster.  But people were standing around it when I wanted to take a picture so we did the bird photo instead.


It was in a weathered barn board frame - looked pretty good.

Aloha

Mea... tissue paper would be great in your wrinkled paper technique too. You would probably also find "rice" paper (goes under various names... washi/ kozo/etc) really interesting to paint on too. It's used by Chinese and Japanese  ink and sumi-e painters and can be purchased in most areas with a strong Chinese population. These days even most  ordinary Australian art stores carry it, so I imagine it would be easy to find in Hawaii. And by the way.... well done!

Oh, dear.  Someone gave me a bunch of rice paper and I gave it away because I did not think I'd use it.

So much for trying to not be a pack rat!

Thanks for the suggestion, though, Linley.
