Okay:
Natalie, that is one beautiful rooster! The chickens will all be after him. And your mask is terrific. Love it.


Jennylynn, my favorite is the stained glass. That piece is frameable! You did all three, wow!


Brian, your rooster has a great mo! He is one bad 'a'  :cowboy:  rooster. How you got that very fancy floral dress from all that color is beyond me, and great fun! Thank you for your comment :angel: .


Denise, I love your rooster painting. He is one very dapper fellow. And I like how he just seems to loom up out of the bg.


Thank you for comments and encouragement everyone. I knew I had to post quick before I saw all these other beauties and 'chickened' out.

Natalie, Love that Rooster and the stained glass one worked out nicely.

jennylynn, the mask is a winner for me.

Sarah, I like the take you've made on the second one.

Brian, I think your third one is pretty cool.

Gonna try mine after it cools down a bit. A cooler change is expected tonight, but only for a couple of days.

I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

Wow all those paintings are so colourful! All of you have done nice paintings! Wish I could have been in the class, but I need to do the basic lessons first!

Keep on!!  :clap: :clap:

 :smitten: Love all the colors!

Sarah I really love your flowers-so loose and free!
Brian your stained glass gal is whimsical and fun. :smitten:

Denise I see two spooky surreal eyes in your mask!  :heeha: and Lynn is right your chicken does have a Picasso feel to it!

I'm excited to see more!  :yippee:

Everyone's roosters are so colorful and vibrant. 


Very fun class!  Didn't paint along.  I never have my supplies ready, plus the layout of my studio doesn't give me a work surface with good visual of the computer.  Anyway, here's my rendition of the Rooster.

OOOOOH!  I was gone all day to a Church Business Mtg., and just got home.  WOW - what great paintings everyone has done.  :congrats: It looks like you all had a fun time with this class.  I signed up for it, but had to miss it, and I sure am bummed!  I'll get the replay, so not all is lost, but I'm a bit jealous of you all!!  I really love the color and spontaneity of them.  Good work all of you  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Also, I'm wondering what time this class aired?  According to the date and time on my feed, it says it's tomorrow at 8 AM.  Obviously that was wrong, since it has already aired, and it's Sunday here. I tried changing my time to different time zones, and nothing changed on the Class info.  I am in the Pacific time zone, and the previous classes have been on Sundays at 10 AM, the last few after all the time changes.  I want to sign up for the next class, but am not sure when it's actually happening!!  :confused:

It was 1:00 CST, so I suppose 11:00 for you. I don't know how I get to be so lucky and get a really prime time. I don't miss church or the care and feeding of my stomach. And still have time to get set up.

Hi Pat...I'm on PST, and it's been 11 am since we turned the clocks back, for class.

Wow....I'm so impressed with the beautiful paintings!!  You all have done such an awesome job....they are great!!  Dennis will be pleased when he looks the forum over. Wow.  What a fun class.

Am going to do another color wheel first....need some "brain training" and brushing up.

I'll try again as it looks like my post vanished into cyberspace ;D

Wow :heeha: Paintings were posted before I had even cleaned up after the class :clap: :clap:
All the roosters came out beautifully.
Natalie and Jennylynn your masks look terrific.
Sarah your 2nd painting is magic.
Brian your 3rd painting is very good, lovely and joyful.
Denise for a very first time your rooster came out very well.
It was a fun lesson and as I pointed out - there is no mistakes in abstracts.
