I had to jump in here and see these beautiful paintings after seeing the thumbnails.  Jennylynn, Natalie, Bhavna, Karen and Sarah, you all did such wonderful paintings.  They are great! I see there is a lot of detail in this and a lot of perspective.  Wow,very impressive work and  O0  to you all!

Karen, just beautiful.  I really like the water and atmospheric perspective you have in the buildings.  Sarah, another beautiful rendition.  I like the limited pallet.

 O0 :clap: :clap:  Sarah, a beautiful painting for sure.  I really enjoyed seeing everyone's work as there was so much detail in the picture and I was wondering how you all managed to paint-a-long!  Wonderful and no doubt a good exercise for there would be no time to "fiddle".  Awesome job by you all.  Patricia

VAL!!!!!! You don't look like a Thanksgiving turkey after all!!!!  :2funny: Love the photo avatar. Thanks everyone for the comments for all of us paintalongers. Dennis gets the credit for the perspective work! Thank goodness. But it is good for me to see how it does work, how it can be simplified and represented. Thanks JennyLynn for looking after me. I needed care and tending after that workout! Fellow paintalongers--well done!!! Well done Dennis! I was a little nervous before this one, but kept thinking "Dennis is going to hold your hand all the way through." Which would have made it difficult for either of us to hold a paintbrush, come to think of it. :heeha:

6:20AM and I'm touring Venice!!!

I setting here thinking about how far we have traveled together, It has been as awsome journey! Dennis has been an fantastic "travel guide"  and the paintings you all produced of the gondolas shows how well we are "mastering the language" of this ( for many of us) new country.

I feel very honored to be sharing this journey with you all!!.... and as soon as I can get my "laces tied"  , I'll scamper along to catch up :2funny: ,  Dennis enjoy your time in SA!!!

Off to the "construction site"..  "She-who-must-be-obeyed    :knuppel2: :knuppel2: " wants her kitchen done by friday and I just started tearing out the old cabnets late yesterday :hammer: :hammer: :run: :run: :run: :run:   Again, wonderful job everybody , I'm ery blessed to be part of this family of choice

Well hop to it then!  :knuppel2:   Oh, you might want to consider painting a few nice scenes in the back of the cupboards...just think how nice it would be for Val to open a cupboard and see a lovely gondola scene, or a peaceful seaside scene, or a........
Just a thought....  :whistle:
