    Default Amateur Night 6

    Didn't get much painting done this winter - the orchids took up the studio lol. Here are a few tho. I'd like to say the paintings are great and my photography is poor but, well, both are lacking. Painting 3 years now and learning all the time. Enjoy.

    Love your paintings, Tami! Thanks for sharing! The first one is my favorite!!! (and btw there is nothing wrong with the chids taking over the studio- that way you will have more inspiration and more beautiful paintings to share with us!

    Yes, Margo, you are right - but it's much better if they are blooming!! My 'chids are in a grumpy mood right now. Hope to see them smile soon.
