When I do paintings like these, I draw the entire picture on canvas and then start painting the background and work forward. I've redone the black so that it is jet black around the ying/yang earth symbols. The black will have white stars when all is said and done.

Gwen- What a precious picture. I am sure you were tired but what beatuful memories.
Yes Google Chrome seems to be working for me.
Sharon you are one busy lady, look forward to seeing your project when you have time.
Off today to see if the computer guy can get things sorted on the laptop.
Comment by Gwen/OH yesterday

Great job on the new project Terri... that's really neat!  I go with the TP too..

Sharon, the bird sanctuary sounds fun; what do you do? Are they birds that are sold? I envision bird cages with all kinds of birds, like a pet store kind-of-thing. It sounds interesting. 

Ally, I don't have problems using Google Chrome either ;)

My trip to Alabama was a whirlwind trip- 12 hrs down, the next day Aaron graduated ( a 30 minutes ceremony to get a handshake and his bars pinned on), then 15 hrs back (stopped twice to eat) the next day. Whew!!  It took a couple days to get the kinks out..lol. We endure for our kids, no matter what age..

Comment by Sharon yesterday

Actually I finally finished the fabric part and will post soon. I am now working at the bird sanctuary and finishing up the year as a Mad scientist so I've been working double shifts- as soon as I get home I head  for a nap!!

But I will be back to one job next week.

Sharon wonder how your snow queen is progressing.? I have been following along with you,maybe life has got in the way that's what usually happens with me.LOL.

Terri- Can you explain your technique, like did you make silloettes out freezer paper then paint background. Just curious!
Comment by Terri D. yesterday

Sorry Ally, they aren't two singers. They are my twin granddaughters doing their karate testing for their next belt. They were so thrilled by the earlier portraits that I did that they asked me to do another painting. They have no idea I'm working on this. I have a neighbor who now wants me to do a painting of her granddaughter. 

Comment by Ally Bryant yesterday
I am sure you can make this painting into a TP,love the bright colours. Is it two singers?
Comment by B J Elder/WA yesterday

I know you can do it, Terri! Looking forward to seeing it.

Comment by Terri D. yesterday

I have started a new painting and am toying with the idea of turning it into a thread painting or art quilt. Have to think on how I want to go about turning it from paint to fiber.
