Re: January, 2020 Animal & Wildlife Challenge

Having problems with electricity here in South Africa so limited time on my computer. I just want to say what a talented bunch you are. Lovely paintings all of you. Wish I had time to comment on each one but suffice to say they are all terrific. Well done.

Re: January, 2020 Animal & Wildlife Challenge

Ouch . I hope you heal well and regain a full range of motion in that arm. I have arthritis in both shoulders from stacking hay for a herd of horses over the years. My horses are all gone at this point as my arthritic knees had gotten so bad that walking is an exercise in agony. I can still paint and do artwork but no more large animals to care for here. Still have the barn cats and a couple of embden geese that are watchdogs and let me know if anyone is coming up the drive. The time you have off is best spent painting and drawing. Surgery is no picnic, but you may as well make lemonade out of that lemon of an accident you suffered.. As always, Deb.

Re: January, 2020 Animal & Wildlife Challenge

I am sorry you suffer so much with arthritis, Deb. A nasty, insidious disease.

Thank you, Chammi. I was thinking of you today and wondering how you were. Take care in the dark.

Sanlynn - Wonderful, alert expression on your Owl!

Penny - Awwwww! what a cutie - great pastel technique! You are doing excellent pastel artwork!

Bonnie - Great job on both the startled owl and the foal! Love those eyes on the Owl!

Zelda - Lovely work on both! I really like those beams of light coming down in the sea, from the top of your painting!

Lesley - Beautiful painting of the Zebras - great job on those stripes!

Chammi - Good to hear from you - take care there in South Africa.

Deborah Sorry to here you suffer so much from Arthritis. I know the feeling having also spent most of my life riding and caring for my horses. Hope you get some relief from the pain.

Bonnie - very good ink drawings, I like the touches of colour too.

Zelda - two beautiful paintings, I love the texture to your rooster amd I like how you chose red for the background, it works really well. Love the light above your clownfish.

Lesley - great work on the zebras, I like the bold stripes.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments, I really appreciate it.

Thank you, Patricia. Your pup is excellent. I love his legs and toes, and beseeching expression.

Tresgatos - I really like your fuzzy owl, the black/grey pen marks give the feathers lots of depth.

Patricia - lovely pup, the fur is wonderful.
