Looking good Carol!

Thanks Pat- I can't wait until I can varnish him- think his colors will really "pop"...

How absolutely charming Carol - how I do love your little paintings!!!

Mona said...

This is lovely Carol! A very magical feeling in it. How long do you wait before varnishing?

Tracy Hall said...

Beautiful piece Carol - what size is it? Gorgeous turtle! Big congratulations on having your work accepted as well - not at all surprised :)

Your harp is looking amazing - do you know when it will be finished?

Carol Andre' said...

Thanks Mona and Tracy. I love turtles and their logs! I have to wait at least 3 weeks according to a gal at Richeson Co. So I give it at least that long.
My harp will be ready in 2-3 weeks. I can hardly stand the wait!!!
I'll post size on the post- totally forgot.

He's a very handsome turtle! I love how he's stretching his neck out to investigate! Have you thought of a title yet? If he was on his back, I'd call it "Pilates". But as he's upright, maybe "Upward Dog" or "Morning Yoga?"

I love this one Carol! Great colors and I think the colors will pop too!

I agree with Mona, magical!

Wonderful, Carol. You have sure got this miniaturism down.

Thanks Gary, Barbara, and Deb. No, he hasn't got a title yet- I haven't had time to even think about one! Just finished another piece yesterday- thinking I may enter it in BIA possibly, not sure, so won't post it for awhile until I decide about that...
Yup, Gary- these minis have "got" me!
