Hi Everyone,
I really liked the image Christine used for the invitation. I fell in love with the blue and yellow parrot. I decided to paint him along with the aloha sign in the background. Once I drew those two things in, I thought that the picture looked a little like a postcard. So, for fun I threw in a pineapple stamp! I also got the idea of the woven palm frawn frame from the photo reference of the guys making the palm frawn hats. I spent 4 hours on this piece. Below, I included a picture at my 2 hour mark. I used oils on a 5"x7" canvas panel.

Oh that is wonderful Thaesha, I loved the birds as well. They were so gentle and beautiful and your postcard is a perfect reminder of a wonderful time spent in Hawaii. Thank you

Hi Thaesha,

I'm loving it. Very cool...and I love how you've incorporated your astute sense of design into oil. Unusually creative.

I too loved her invite pic. You are very creative. Maybe if I hang around here some of the creativity will rub off on me.
