Wow, this is so gorgeous! I haven't done the Shell Challenge yet, and I'm very glad it's not over. I don't know if I'll have time before a deadline but it's so cool to see this.

Hope you had a good trip! So - are we going to see some shell-paintings by you soon? Or landscapes from Aurora province? (That's one part of the PI I've not been to.... yet!)

So you uploaded the shells. Actually, these look quite nice here. You did a great job, for it takes more concentration for you to paint those individual shells. Good job, bravo :clap:

This is really beautiful. I liked how you incorporated cooler colors into your painting than just the very warm oranges from the picture.

Sure you can dowload it - be my guest! Only... I don't know how good this would be for wallpaper - might be a bit too busy and make it difficult to find the icons on it....

You are right! I went and checked - and there isn't a single :+fav: indicated! How very strange! And I know that quite a few people did fav it. But let's not panic; as you seem to have the same problem with some or your recent photos I guess this is just another of DA's little periodical glitches which they'll get around to fixing sooner or later.
:lmao:
Enjoy your new wallpaper! :highfive:

That's great! :D :highfive:
Actually - if you are into shells for wallpaper, I might have a much better one for you - not as "busy" as the painting. It's a photo of a giant clam son no. 2 took. I used it as wallpaper for quite a while but now I've switched to a field of tulips = springtime.... ;)
'll have to hunt around for it a bit - must be somewhere among my back-up files.... I hope

I'll put it in "scraps", if you don't mind. I'd like to keep my gallery for paintings. ;)

Yes, one does get rusty after a long pause from painting, but it'll come back fast, you'll see! Anyway, it's great to hear that you are wielding your brushes again! :D
Btw: How are your guests doing - or have they left already? There's been so much going on here I sort of lost track of time...

As I predicted the rain arrived with Tom's parents! The weather has been awful, only a couple of really good days! They are all very exicted at being together and Tom's dad had a great birthday last Sunday...thankfully one of the sunny days :) We've maanged a few sightseeing trips but seem to be spending a lot of time watching the rain and drinking tea :laughing: Thanks for thinking of us :hug:

Aaarrrggghhh!!! But isn't it always like this? Lovely weather before... and the visitors arrive and it's bucketing down! And you sure predicted it, I remember!
Well, I wouldn't mind one bit sending some of our sunshine (and temperature!!!) over to you! Here it's hot, hot, HOT, and I'm painting with a small towel around my neck.... to catch the drips of perspiration before they fall on the picture!
The only salvation at the moment is the pool. Not that jumping in is in any way refreshing, mind you (water temperature = 31 degrees C!!), but with a wet swimsuit and a bit of a breeze... on my floating armchair "anchored" at the shady end of the pool under the frangipany tree... with a nice book and a cool drink.... well, things could be a lot worse I suppose!

Ms. Pat, you never fail to amaze me with every painting you do. I think this is my favorite one just because of all the colors and how well you captured the colors in each shell. You are too good! :)
