This is the view out my back door and I can't help but start to dream of what things will look like when spring comes. My favorite thing in the world is to just sit and listen to the birds sing while I look out over this vista. It was nothing like the cacophony that spring will bring, but I did hear several birds chattering happily.
And I know I said no more updates until this painting is done, but it's going to go into next week and I know you were dying of curiosity lol! The lighter tower roofs on the right are what I did today, tomorrow I will go back in and darken them with the same colors as in the other roofs. I also have to lay in the red trim in one area. You can see I started the sky on the left, but haven't carried it to the right yet, that's just a fresh coat of white to work on. I've misted in the back hills and knocked back just about all the castle buildings to get them to sit behind the figure just right. I'm still not quite happy with the hair but this is getting close to the final painting, as I've been taking my brush at the end of each session and working over the older parts to tie everything in together.

Gale's work is uniquely her own style in every sense of the word. I've chosen three items, the first two leaning towards her wonderful sense of color and form and the last is just one that I totally have my eye on because it's well, just so me!
The Lady Sarah Textile Cuff just captures my imagination with that haunting color combination. Although it has a rose shape it makes me think of a lovely lotus sitting in one of Monet's paintings :)
And who on earth could not be captivated with the title of She was a Black-Eyed Bumper Car ?! Gale's product description have so much flavor I want to eat them right up :D
The last feature piece is the Taking Fire Ring which I just lust after, so couldn't not include it lol
I think we're lucky to have fatalattraction in our market to lend such a wonderful flavor!
