Patience, I am learning.


It has been a very long time since I last posted in my blog. I have been working on my flower piece which has been a very slow but pleasurable process. Without a doubt Michael Newberry is and excellent mentor and I have learned so much from him and this program. I had never planned my work before and now I understand the importance of doing so. When I see a tutorial of his and see all of the work he puts into one piece I understand why he is steering in that direction and no matter how long it takes me to finish a piece, I know I will be happy with the result.


This piece is still not finished but I worked on it quite a bit this week so I will post this update and I have started some thumbnails for my next piece.

Mary,

So delightful to see the new post. The Iris is exquisite and the detail of the whole piece has such depth. This was worth waiting for and I look forward to seeing the next step.

Mary, that flower and it's shadow are incredible!! I can see your growth in this piece. I'll be watching for the grand finale whenever it comes.
