Fruit Frenzie

Hi All!
Just wanted to share a new painting that I did a week or so ago. This one was painted on watercolor paper that I first prepped with a sealer.
Anyway...this one I designed myself. So I was very pround of myself doing this one, as I usually use other artists designs and follow their directions.
This is also special because it was painted for a very special lady ~ Her name is Cindi Estes. She is my instructor for the module classes that I've been talking about. She is a very wonderful lady and artist, who is very positive in her critiques of her students, at the same time being honest in what we need to fix or work on. She always makes you feel like you accomplished something thus reaching milestones in our artistic journey.
She hit a milestone herself recently, so we (her students) decided to honor her by each of us painting a handemade card for her and "shower" her with them to show our love and appreciation for her amazing ability to teach us and guide us, but to be there almost 24/7 for any questions or problems we might be having.
She is an amazing woman!!! Her website is on the collumn to the right if you would like to find out more about her. If you have an interest in taking art classes, you won't find a better teacher then Cindi...and you can do it all from your own home...Her classes are taught online.
Thanks for reading!!!And please feel free to leave comments!
Ta Ta for now!

Looks good enough to eat, Dianne! Very nice paintings. I enjoyed meeting you at the Heart of Dixie Luncheon and talking art with a fellow painter. Going to see if I can find that new medium you mentioned. Keep up the good work!...Lyn Stone
