Getting ready for Dec challenge
 
Clearing the decks so I can get started on this months challenge. Not all totally finished, but all almost there. :angel: This is a big win for me.
1. Will add a glimpse of tail feathers, and adjust the eyes and beak. 'He' is swinging left. Oil pastel over an ink pour.


2. Self portrait! No ... can't think of a name for it. Oil pastel on canvas.


3. Another self portrait . :) .. Oil pastel over acrylic, with some walnut oil (Jeffro :wave: ) added.

Lovely! The 2nd is my favorite.

Mine too Christel. I had a lot of fun designing her. I have hopes the bird will work out how I'm imagining it.

Cool!! I love all of them. The self portrait is the best for me, but the birds are beautiful and fun. I admire your imagination!

Imaginative trio full of energy! Really like the movement you have in Number 1. Looking forward to the final touches!

Your self portrait is lovely.....you are 'all jazzed up'!

Thanks Terri. I had an Instagram follower ask me what drugs I was on when I painted. :lol: I don't know how Icome up with my ideas but it's sure not drugs. But it got a good laugh from the family.

That's funny!! The mention of drugs points to a lack of imagination for many folks - they must not understand that drugs would only muddle the mind and make it impossible to focus on art! :lol:

I agree Terri. I wasn't sure what to think at first. Now I just laugh.

I also really like the dynamic 2nd painting!

Oh, what a weird question from that instagram guy. I would be confused too!

Thanks Sarah. I really value your feedback and opinions.
I wasn't happy with the bird so I gave it a make over. Now I'm not sure.

It was a young women. Now it's just a good story. It is so the opposite of me.
