THanks, Linley and Cath. 

It's always satisfying to me to paint the something that has meaning for the recipient.

Mea...I recently gave 'Hope' (girl gazing at a dove in flight) to a friend who liked it. She's posted it on facebook as a personal talisman. I hadn't realized it it meant so much to her, but she's going through a marriage break-up. It makes me feel really good to think it helps her! You are right about personal meaning.

We have a new exhibit coming up in March so I am trying out some different things.

This is line and gouache (Holbein on Strathmore Mixed Media paper 140lb) - Diamond Head. 


I have plenty of time to tweak it.  Any suggestions?  (Except please do NOT ask me to add surfers!)

Yes, Linley, a couple birds would be good. 

Actually, I was just practicing with people, even a surfer.  Getting daring!

Looks beautiful Mea. Great colourings. Couple of birds and maybe a surfer or two...... what a scene that would make!  ;)      :whistle:
Cheers, Val

Thanks, Val.   
 
I will do a couple of practice attempts and see if I can add the surfers.  Maybe some people on the beach, too.

Since they will only need to be tiny shapes, I think I can pull it off.

Thanks, Win.  Haven't gotten up the courage to add the people yet.
