Thanks, Vic.
I got that bird image in my mind early on and it was all I could do to keep from putting big yellow legs on it. But Polly wanted Altay, she'd mentioned it a long time ago. So that's what she got.
Still, I can't get the bird image out of my mind. Green Grin!

If Ethan had been here, he'd have seen the big purple bird just like I did.
He's my 7 year old grandson.
We think alike.

I never would have even remotely seen a bird until you kept harping on it Shar. It looks like an iris to me. Thumbs up

Hummmm.... I think everyone has strange places in their minds. It just depends on who is looking at the strangeness. If it's an open minded person who is not judgmental then then at least they don't call you weird or demented. It's only the uptight, quote unquote "normal", mainstream, seemingly "well adjusted" people who judge harshly & lordy! do they ever have some strange things in their minds. Whistling

And I have the gorgeous painting. Thank you so much! It's even better in person.

Something I will cherish forever from my dear BFF.

But what's this about a bird? No way!

It's a bird!! A giant purple bird. Bet Jenna thinks so too, Polly.

And you thought all the time that it was an iris.

I tried to add as much blue as I could, I know how you love blue. But that iris was so un-blue, it screamed magenta!
So you got a big purple bird. Lovey dubby

And the iris isn't blue. You got the color and the form perfect!

Nope, Jenna know her irises. She can probably tell you it's Altay.

Polly, when you get your painting set up on the easel or hung, would you please post a picture so I can see?

Thanks, Vic, I think.

And thanks, Janice.
It was so warm here last night we had thunderstorms.
Very strange for December.
Pretty today, though.

I will Sharon. But I'm sure you can understand why it will be awhile. And since I don't have easels hanging around the house like some people, LOL.
