My 2nd Attempt at Bird's Nest and Roses!

This is my 2nd painting of my bird's nest with the roses. This painting business must have driven Monet and Van Gogh absolutely nutsy!! Anyway, I may give this one away since I haven't been able to sell anything on ebay yet. I wonder if I cut off my left ear would it help to become famous. Or maybe I should wear a silly little hat while painting. Of course, I'd look a bit silly since I'm indoors! Any suggestions??? I think I like this one better than the last one though. Next one coming up is chicks and roses! Hah, I'll bet you just can't wait, right?!?!?! Riiiiight?!?!?!?


  1. This is fantastic! The other one was loverly too.

    I think you are doing better than you think you're doing! lol Are you taking any kind of class? Are you self taught? I struggled with painting the One Stroke method for years until I went to a class. My instructor was very good-(read, patient and long suffering!)Other than that, read many paint books. My instructor has shelves and shelves filled to bursting with books including books on perspective. I have found many helpful art books at my local library. Art is like writing. To be a good author you must read. To be a good painter, you must study other people's work.
    Keep going. You're doing great!

  3. I think it is lovely. The right buyer has just not stumbled upon it yet. Please keep the ear. Love, Esther

  4. I love this Connie! I think you are doing a wonderful job and taking risks and they are working!! Great job!

    Love you!

  5. I think it is looking so good. You are doing an awesome job. Hang in there and Please don't cut your ear off, lol.

    Remember what we always told the kids when they were little, practice makes perfect, right?


Comments are so nice and I thank all of you that leave one for me.
