Dana, I love it! That bird is adorable and is making me hope that its mother will be back soon because I agree it looks lonely. Smile

Half way through August - Here's my July painting Laughing



It's on a 12" x 12" board. I got brave and did the lime segments with a knife. After it dries I'm going to put several coats of glossy varnish on it.

This was from a photo on the Back to Essentials site (see links at beginning of challenge):

It turned out just great, Callie. Using a knife worked very well for this. Good colours! Smile

Thanks, Sofie. It was kind of like spreading cake frosting on that board - but I didn't lick the knife! Laughing

Thanks Dayle, Judy, Janet! It was fun messing around with the knife. I think if I'd used a brush for the segments I'd still be plodding along on this. Have to get started on the August painting now!
