Yes, it is that time of week to let out jump high and let out a Woo Hoo.
My first Woo Hoo is, I do not think I shared my department's bulletin board a co-worker and I decorated this month. We get a lot of compliments on our board. I sit right by it and it makes me Happy at work when I see it and hear people commenting while they walk by. I really would love a Cricit like she has. I could do so many things with it!
My next Woo Hoo is the painting class I went to last night. When I saw this painting class I knew I wanted to do it. I thought of my son when he went to Spain. I also thought of our ballroom dancing classes and I wanted to do this in the worse way. I only hoped my lady would look decent. I am very HAPPY with the way she turned out. This one I am going to definitely frame.
I loved the different textures of the background. I loved the bodice of the gown and the shading. I was happy with the way the dress flowed and my fans.
A closer view of the bodice and one of the fans.
At first I was not happy with her hair but then I added a few highlights and it came to life.
A close up of her hair and my other fan.
Here is a video of someone doing a Flamenco Dance.
Can you not feel her dancing movements in my painting? I am so surprised how I actually captured the feeling of her dancing.
(I took my painting off the wall to try to get another picture without the flash glare in the kitchen where I have better lighting, however the gold background did not turn out as the true color it is.)
Originally I was going to give it to my son as a gift. Although he loved it he told me he felt it was to feminine for a bachelor's pad. I had to crack up thinking of him having a bachelor's pad. Now I am trying to decide if I shall keep it or give it to my Mother to hang in her family room with other drawings of mine. I do love it so I am so torn. Every time I walk by it, I have to stop and smile. I really did not think I was going to do a good job with this one. I honestly surprised myself.
What do you have to Woo Hoo about?
