Hummingbird Note Cards and "Stuff"

Submitted by diana on Mon, 09/07/2015 - 11:30am

Happy Labor Day all!

A volunteer at the Mission asked if I painted hummingbirds and promptly ordered a set of note cards.  I had to get busy since I had never painted the hummers on a note card. 

A little trial and error - part of the art world process I'm learning - I finished them up last night.  Now to get a pencil fixant to insure the pencil shading doesn't smear.  I can't wait to share this with hubby's 84 year old aunt whi loves the little birds.  She has several feeders hanging on her patio/deck.  I've never seen such a swarm or such aggression of territory of these beautiful creatures as apparent at her house!  Wow!  I feel good just watching one or two on our feeders.  Cool huh!

I decided to take a leap of faith and be a part of Under the Stars art gallery in Ohio!  She's ordered 48 bookmarks of dragons, owls, bookworms, and coneflowers.  "All" I have to do is get removable price tags, assemble the order, mail the signed contract with payment, wait for the check to clear and ship out my 'babies" to a land far far from Texas! 

I'm excited!!!!

Plus Arts Goggle is coming up October 10th - mark your calendars!

Off to paint more dragon bookmarks - only have 2 in inventory!
