I posted to this and it didn't post so I'll start over. These are great and thanks so much for sharing. My little sis sent me a few gourds a few years back to paint on. I would like to find some of the large ones at a reasonable price to paint on someday.

You are great at painting animals and everything it looks like. I haven't painted much for animals but plan to do more this year if all works out. I started a horse head last year on an old suitcase and put it up when I was having alot of company and not sure where it is right now so I should find it and finish it.

Thanks so much for sharing your story about your name on here. I think it's fine to be Jan if that's your preference. Jan only comes to post once in a while so we don't always have a Jan here. I use phonegirl because we own two cell phone companys and I go by Punk every day in real life but my name is Dora.

Lillyjane or Jan, you can use whichever feels most comfortable for you, it won't be a problem.

Love your birds, I painted a couple this past year and they weren't as hard as I had imagined, so might try a few more this year.

Your deer is great! You do realistic painting quite well. Love the background you did on that pot too.
