Hi Again, I painted this during the time I spent last week with my SG. He did his homework and I painted.

The pattern is one by Mary Jo Tuttle and I found that it is really hard to find patriotic ribbon during Feduary. After looking at it hanging think I will go back and shade the area between the wooden star and the banner....big area of nothing!

Belle, I love it! You hadn't mentioned that you got in some painting time while with your GS. That's great. You sure did a good painting job on this one, all your lining and shading look perfect. I like how you have it hanging too. I like Mary Jo Tuttle's designs too, but don't have any of her books--strange huh? Guess I just never ran across them while shopping for books. Luvs

Belle,

That big area of nothing is so cool when you sit back and really stare, it almost looks like tromp l' oeil painting. Take another look and let me know what you think. Another great project. Punk

Thank you all for the kinds words and the input! I guess we all are to critical of our own work.

The auction plaque actually sold for $39.00! Would you believe! Dh said that two women just kept out bidding each other.

Belle, this is really lovely. I agree with Punk, the banner on the bottom actually looks curved. You did a great job. I hope you are hanging this inside and not outside, smile!
