A bit of practice on cherry blossoms, bamboo and a peony before putting them on the painting for Susan Beth. I hope she'll like it. I'm pleased so far. Just a tiny bit of detailing left, but need to think about it before it actually do it.
This little Chinese girl represents Elizabeth, Susan's adopted baby from China. She has a stuffed panda toy that she takes with her everywhere so of course one has to be in the painting with her. :)
Then I got paper clay happy the other day and made a LOT of birds. It was fun. I have made two ornaments and this pull toy bird so far.
