Lady Bug Dress

Acrylic with Palette Knife 10x8"

My latest in my new series of toddler legs.  Legs courtesy of my OTHER niece!  I am now out of nieces, so if anyone has any photos of little toddlers they would like to share as painting references, feel free to send them my way!

If you have read my blog for awhile, you will know that I am on a quest to improve the photo images of my paintings (now there's a positive way to put it!).  Thanks to Rick (photoshop guru who is helping me tremendously with my prints) at Henco Reprographics, I now know that the color and values are even affected by the ANGLE TO THE MONITOR the image is viewed from.  Artist friends, did you know this???  Try viewing one of your paintings on your monitor from various angles, and you will see for yourselves...

P.S.  Guess whose dog needs surgery on her other knee?

Oh gosh, poor Jane. So hard. It is like family.
So sorry Meredith. When will Jane need surgery?
Sweet series you are working on!

Thanks, Susan...we can't do surgery till after the winter is over. I sent you an email about it. If they slip during the first six weeks of recovery, they can damage the leg beyond repair. So I want to wait till after winter.

Thanks, Carol! Glad you like it. I think my sister would take more photos and they would be most welcome...they just wouldn't be toddler legs anymore. Well, she really wasn't a toddler the day this was taken, but much younger than now...Happy Valentines!!

Hello Meredith, Love the toddler legs from 30 in 30 as well as this lady bug!! Very creative and unique subject! Love it!!
Also thank you for your encouraging comments on my blog on my 30 in 30. Seriously.. I was so much busy painting that I could not comment on any others. Now catching up slowly. It was definately great practice for me and I think I improved a lot.

Thanks for coming to visit, Prerana, I know what you mean about how busy that month was. Glad to meet you through our blogs! And so glad you had a good challenge...
