    1. Yes, I’m having a good time in my studio. This is the third iteration of this bird. It was fun to do it this way so I’ll be looking for other images to give this treatment to. I’m so glad you like it!

  1. I love this, Melissa! In my top 3 faves! Thank you for a beautiful, light-hearted greeting. The title is great too.

  2. Love this! The colors blend so well.
    I will have Fridays off starting in December… can we set up a play date? 😃

    1. Hugs back, Kim! Thank you. I had such a good time with my little bird. First I painted it as a straight portrait, then I painted it as a dark silhouette on a basket, and finally this way. Definitely something I want to explore further.

  3. It’s lovely, and reminds me of art projects we did when I was much younger. All I remember is that colored tissue paper was involved, and that the result was very much stained-glass like. This one shimmers and shines with the same simplicity and light.
