Been reading posts and looking at your pictures for a while now. Retired two years ago - took my first painting lesson same week. Going to try to post pictures of some things I have painted. Hope they show up.

Well, that didn't go quite right did it!!! Now that I've found and saved Anjabee's instructions for uploading pics (should have gone there first) I'll try to upload more pics later today.

I like everyone else, love the frame. The colors are beautiful. I really like your leaves. I still can't do leaves. Yours are perfect. Great job.

Oh sorry, I didn't realize you had posted more pictures on this thread. I guess nobody else did either or I'm sure they'd have commented. For first tries on some of those you really did a great job. Love all the flowers, but my favorite is the Hibiscus! It's awesome. I just planted 2 in my yard. I hope they look as pretty as your painting! ha They all look really nice! ~Anj

Gosh, guess I thought I'd already posted on this one and didn't come back again either. Sorry about that Retiree, all of these are great. I agree, your hibiscus is awesome! You are really doing great with your painting. Did you enjoy the Bob Ross class? I just started saving some of those Crystal Light containers too, aren't they cute? Luvs

RE: Attempting to post pictures . . .

Yes, Luvs, I really enjoyed the Bob Ross class. I've taken two more classes and fine them exciting. I am now saving those tall containers the coffee creamer comes in(found in the dairy case). I plan to paint snowmen or a snow family on them.

I like to recycle containers too. But I have to admit that I sometimes don't know what to do with them after I do! Just seems such a shame to throw away a cute container when it could be spruced up and repurposed. Have you seen my painted pickle jar post? Love to do Christmas designs on them too.

I sure wish there were more painting shows on television. I love to watch Bob Ross paint. Hmmm, I wonder if there is a U tube of him? Will have to look. D. Dewberry is on some PBS stations, but we don't get her here. I have some of her videos, one by Delane Lange and a Donna Spiegel one. Sometimes, especially when I'm sick, I like to just pop one in and watch them paint away. ;o)

Hope you will keep coming back to visit with us. And we love seeing all your projects.
