Splendor in the Grass


Voila! My pheasants are finished!
Aren't they a handsome couple?
They will be in my shop tonight.
Have a wonderful weekend all!

I know I was happy with the intial water colour work, but you are of course right ;-), your beautiful beautiful application of pattering and added colour palette has transformed these into truly stunning works. Again, just wonderful. xx

Priya, Naomi, Kate, Helen, thank you all! You know I am wild about patterns and at this point I feel the need to wallpaper everything!

Holly, these are incredible!

Oh, I love them! I'm especially fond of the weeds and grasses in which they're standing. Beautiful work.

RosaMaria, yes, really big! It's hard to convey as everything always looks the same size. Maybe I'll take a picture with them.

Joelle, thank you so much for stopping by! I so appreciate it!

Floatingink, I gathered the wheat grass and lantern pods weeks ago and they seemed to belong in these paintings.

Beautiful! I had to look at the images enlarged to appreciate all of your beautiful and artful detail. I like the white embellishment and the subtle natural colors of the grass.
