The finished picture

 Well this is it the finished picture, maybe a few changes needed but I'm not sure what yet, any ideas.

I took three pictures because the flash shows up but I'm not good at taking photos.

    1. You are so right it's a fiddle thing you see something that's not right and you just touch it up and its easy to go to far.
      I will hang it in my craft room for a while.

  12. Any ideas? You're asking the wrong person here. I do furniture and slap a coat of solid colour on most pieces. That wouldn't work for this.
    I think it's beautiful.

    You are one lucky individual to have such a talent. I really like your work. This reminds me of a tapastry I have. I can't begin to imagine how artists take brush in hand and begin to create a picture. I applaud you.

  29. Merle,
    This is such a delightful picture. I love all the colors, and the trees are so pretty. I'm a "tree" person and often take pictures of them. I didn't know you painted - what an incredible talent you have!

    Have a good week ahead.

    Love,
    ~Sheri

A first tooth for our little lady and eating out.

We are off and playing more and more on the floor. No teeth yet for Wilbur but Clemmy has one on the bottom. But impossible...
