 :sweat: Wow! That feels like a runaway train. Only painted along on two. The stained glass I obviously got too wet, and then got so intent on finding all these flowers that I didn't watch to see what Dennis was doing. Might have to try it again. But it was fun doing this live, I have to admit. Thanks Dennis!

Awesome Natalie, Jennylnn and Sarah.  You guys are naturals.  Here is my rooster.  I lost connection for much of the class so I did another rooster rather than get frustrated and then saw Dennis doing the stained glass but had already started a tree so "stained it" sorta.  I still don't know how to post multiple pics on one post so I'll just post the rooster.  If someone could tell me, that would be great!

You ALL are GOOD!! 

here is my "Chick"    (felt like I should ask permission from Lillian... Her chickens are AWSOME!!!)


here is #2  the mask... At least the general outline could be an abstract map of Africa :yippee: :yippee:


And here is number 3, the title is Who says "Girls can't play foot ball" :knuppel2: :knuppel2: ???    

I WILL NOT mention who I thought of dedicating this painting to.... she is way too close geographicaly to risk doing that... I may be  :idiot2: :idiot2: but I'm  :smart: enough not to do that  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:


A fun class and a great way to get back into "slinging" paint.... 3 weeks with out painting, and I sure can tell...

I have missed you all

Great stuff everyone!! This was my first time speed painting :run: -- I mean, participating in a live class. I needed a rest after the second painting so I just have posted only 2 :D . Thanks so much Dennis for teaching a different kind of class today. Looking foward to next week too!

Sarah,

Just went back to take some extra time with your flowers...Even more impressive the second look

and a second look at everybody else's .. You all did very good... the mask all turned out so well for you...

Think i may do this one again soon!

P.S.  does anyone else miss the "spell check" feature we use to have...( My 3rd grade teacher told me " there is NO relationship between spelling ability and general inteliagence"  I loved that women!!! :yippee: :yippee:

Lynn, I just put one smg id # under the other. Be sure to hit return so they each have their own line. I got a peek at your tree and other chicken. You've got to get them in here. Wonderful!!!!!!

Sarah--Thank you.  Do you mean that you just type the img # into the post? rather than copying the BBC code and pasting?  or do you really mean smg #, if so, I don't know what that is.

Lynn, you could type it in or copy. If you want to copy, you can right click on your own gallery icon (while still on your screen for posting) and choose "open link in new window". You can copy your code and just get back into the screen for posting. Hope that makes sense - if not someone will come along to help I'm sure... :)

I didn't know that Denise!!!! Lynn I have always just typed in my [smg id=xxx] because I didn't know any better. It works. But I didn't know I could open my gallery in another window. You clever girl.

Man, these Roosters are sure struttin' their stuff!  Such vivid colors.. Great job everyone!! 
I like the other things too... Not sure what this lesson was about... I assume three different abstract methods or styles???   Brian, I like your football player!!  So cute and so :2funny:

Sarah--ahh, would love to steal the compliment, but I learned that from either Batman or Nolan when I had the exact same question. Glad I could pass it along (and look smart at the same time ::) )
