Hi Everyone – First I want to say Thank you!!!! for your support on my book crete chae clay, It was an experience and a learning process for sure. Finally after July 22 I think I had most corrections complete and it has done really well on Amazon . I have been working on setting up group and projects and getting to know people who have reached out with questions . It has been really lovely and I appreciate the support from you all and Jonni so very much. The new work is approx 7 feet and I am just starting the underpainting. Im very excited about the purple Iris and I am really enjoying getting better control over having open spaces in the designs and enjoying the extra building options that finally getting the welder has made possible structurally.

That is an amazing piece of art. The design is perfect. The coloring looks good to me no matter which way you go!
Thank You ! I am moving along with the coloring slowly , much harder to make a crane have good Pop colors . Maybe another 2 weeks or so and then I will post the finished coloring.
If you ever decide to sell it, I hope I’m first on the list. I have birds all over my house! This is absolutely the most gorgeous thing I can imagine. It really belongs in a museum.
Wow, Rex Thanks! All of my work is for sale . If you are really serious please get in touch with me through my website. This piece is quite large ( just making sure you realize the size) . She is approx 80 inches tall. 6 foot 8 inches tall by 41- 42 inch wide at the circular framing. I was thinking of increasing her height a bit for an outdoor exhibition that would require a base . Would you want her to be inside or outside ? That would inform more about the base needs and if you dont mind my asking where do you live ? Weather and shipping or personal delivery would be a consideration. Thanks again for your enthusiasm and please do get in touch . Lee
Such a lovely shape and colors. Thank you for sharing. Your work is inspirational.
Thank you Pat. I am fighting with the coloring a bit today. I would like this one to be a crane , but the Heron’s keep sneaking in color wise. lol
No matter which way it goes, I know it will be beautiful!
This is so beautiful. I love the colours you are using!
Thank You Penny .
