A finish... and another finish.


I think the bit of decoration on the umbrella helped. I fiddled with her nose and the background a bit, too. Oil on panel 6" x 6"


I had to make up the duck on this one. All the images I had were the backs of ducks. Hope this feels plausible. Oil on panel 6" x 6"

Isn't it amazing what a little embellishment can do! Pulls your eye right around the painting!

Hi Susan, I gave you a plug on my last posting, hopefully send some people your way. When is the next video demo, I sure love watching them. Barb

Hi Susan, How cool are these two? The touches on the umbrella and nose made that one click.

The backwards ducks made me smile.

Fun to see you last evening. :)

Both pieces are fabulous and I love the umbrella. I agree the decoration on the umbrella is the perfect touch. Bravo!!!

Thank you Dianne, Barbara, Jo and N.R.H.! I sure appreciate the positive feedback. I keep looking at that duck and now I've decided it needs to sit deeper in the water. Maybe even look up at the women. Am I nuts? It's so hard to leave well enough alone!
