My Work In Progress Bird of Paradise Painting...



So, I finally put my bird of paradise painting on the easel, with every intention of making progress.  Then I decided the baby blue background wasn't working for me.  Now it's a darker shade of blue.  In fact a little bit darker then this photo shows, the flash went off and has altered the color somewhat.  I feel better about it now, but while it's progress in how I feel about it, it's sort of a horizontal progress.  I am in much the same place I was when I shared this painting to begin with, it's just a slightly different direction.

I did, however, finish another painting earlier this week, my Halloween fairy painting.  She's on eBay here or you may visit her further down on my page...

Also, I'm joining in this week with Paint Party Friday.  To see more participants, please visit:

Progess is good. I think the orange bird of paradise will so totally pop against that beautiful blue you have put it. Can't wait to see it. Happy PPF

Thank you all so much! I appreciate your encouragement.

Shannon, I think your etsy shop is very sweet, I haven't yet been brave enough to try etsy.
