I've been having a great time with this year's 21 Secrets. I will share my take on several of the classes starting with the Juliette Crane class. Juliette's class was about painting a whimsical owl as well as giving tips and techniques for other whimsical animal characters.
My niece, Sarah, works on a pig farm and loves all of her little oinkers so I painted this postcard and sent it to her for Earth Day
.After the pig I came up with a cow, a chicken and a sheep (sounds like the start of a bad joke). These pictures make both pieces seem the same size however they are not. The pig postcard is 4 x 6 " and the journal is just oveer 8 x 11".
Anyway, as you can see I have not painted a whimsical owl yet but I will at some point. I liked Juliette's teaching style very much and I really enjoyed this class. I look forward to many more whimsical animals to come.
In addition to having fun playing 21 Secrets this week I also had a fun mail day. Yesterday I received my copy of the May/June Somerset Studio and am happy to say I am included in this issue.
Pick up your copy when they hit the store shelves May 1st.
