This soaring male has a red and pink body with purple tail and green wings. His motto is never say dull!
This diving acrobat is aiming for his target blossom with one extended wing and one in gliding slimline. I had a bit of fun using bright purple for his shadow areas and give him a roundness with light blue on the top surface. The forest gree wing surfaces allows enough seperation to really show the wings as separate from his body.
I love cute little Gnomes in the yard, and our do have multiple lives. We have two Gnomes outside that have had a few rough winters. Both have broken parts that needed fixing, were faded and badly in need of cleaning. They didn’t actually look so bad to me till after Pete had fixed the broken parts and they were standing next to the “new” hunter on the kitchen counter. This new “hunter Gnome” is presented here especially for my brother and sister in Albuquerque. Rocky do you like him? He is at our front door. Leona should I send you guys one? Hmmmm?
You can tell that the bigger one is really faded when you look at them together. He had to have his right foot glued back on and the rock underneath it glued too. See how extreme the fading is…
I wasn’t quite sure how to go about painting them but got out the acrylic paints and went to work and have thoroughly enjoyed doing it this afternoon. Now I need to rest my broken collarbone.
I got a unexpected surprise when I put the tablecloth on our dining room table. It was way too long reaching down to the floor on both ends. Don’t know how I made that error but Pete says the material I purchased for the cloth was at the end of a bolt of material so he assumes that I got more yardage than originally figured. Hmmmm. This tablecloth is being cut into two now, a full length one and another at 60″ square approx. Didn’t know I was working on two all this time but did think it was sure long whenever I bunched it up to put on my lap.
