Inspiration Avenue - Mother and Sweet Saturdays

>> Saturday, April 16, 2011

"Mother"
I'm using this image for both Inspiration Avenue's prompt and Sweet Saturdays as I think it fits for both.  I had a lot of fun with this one.  My distant trees aren't exactly the greatest but I still love this one.  I think it's my new fave!  BTW, it is the first painting I've put my signature on.  EEEHH!  I was so tempted not to but I know I should get used to adding it.  I think next time I will make it more subtle though.  Don't want it to distract from the painting itself so much.

I love the way you painted the distant trees. Since they are so muted it puts the focus on your adorable mommy and baby giraffe! I love it. :-)

What a lovely painting. Giraffes are so interesting to watch. Such beautiful big eyes and long graceful legs and necks.

This is a lovely piece, Deanna, and there's nothing wrong with the distant trees. The giraffes are very nicely done and very life like.

Who cares about the trees - I was too busy looking at the adorable giraffes! This is so lovely. I'm glad you're using it as your header as it deserves to be seen every day.

How do I keep missing your posts - I was sure you were on my sidebar!

Your recent posts are gorgeous! Love this one and that moon is stunning!

Doesn't that Figure Drawing book look amazing? I'm definitely getting it - have been saving my Amazon vouchers - you are in the US aren't you? It's on Book Depositary - a couple of £'s more than Amazon.co.uk I noticed but free postage! Oh and just to say - sorry I haven't posted your book yet - vbeen manic here with the kids being off but it's all parcelled up, going to get OH to take it with his deliveries on Monday.

I LOVE, love, love this- you really captured that nurturing feeling between a mother and child that is present no matter what species the subject is. Beautiful work!
