Cold Wax Update

I added more color to the background the other day...then last night i finally decided what my painting's subject was going to be when i saw an egret at the reservoir...
i have always associated egrets with calm and peaceful

so i was again finally able to work on the painting some tonight...i have the egret begun...

there is a lot more to do to just the painted portion but i need to add some more texture to the overall piece and i needed to know where the bird was going to sit...
i just happened to have some green in the piece...hmmm was that a subconscious plan...muuuaaaawwaaaaaa hahahaaa
probably not

so stay tuned for the next phase of the project


tahdah...soon will be the launching of my new website!!!!!

i could not do the site myself...i tried
i totally do not speak web design...and it was beyond frustrating for me
admiring a fellow artisan who does web design as well
Christy Sobolewski at
she has all the features within her site i was asked would she design me a site
and i am SOOO excited ...she would!

I will have my classroom and all my information in one place!
which i think is awesome
i don't have to wonder if the site i join and begin to have host my classes is going to change or die...
soon will be the unveiling of my beautifully designed site...

thank you for coming by have a great weekend!

I stopped by earlier this morning to tell you what a fantastic job you are doing on this piece, then got caught up in Christy's blog (which BTW needs a "r" added in the link) and failed to come back. Anyway, I love that egret and way you used the piece of green to anchor the feet.
