Hummingbird for Fly Challenge

Inspiration Avenue has a weekly creativity challenge and this is the first week that I am participating.  I don't really paint but want to, so this was just the excuse I needed to give it a try.

The theme is 'fly'.



Why don't you pop over and add in your own entry?

Oh, great work, Terry! I am amazed. I think I am scarred when it comes to art - my sister is phenomenal already. Once I drew a bird (a robin) and I was really proud. And my mom was like, "where's his tail?" Doh. I will have to stick to what I do best, which is gluing and sewing things together!

Deborah said...

Awesome! Love the colors. And( wow!) for someone who doesn't paint--you should paint more...

Terry said...

Thank you so much, Deborah. I suspect you're being kind, lol.

You painted THIS? It is incredible. Those wings looked like something I might try to make with mixed media, but never paint. Beautiful!

Terry said...

Um, thanks. Wow, you've totally made me feel fabulous. :)

This is beautiful, Terry! I love the jewel-like colors and the texture in his wings.

Thanks for playing at Inspiration Avenue! We're always excited to see new faces and inspiring new art!

ps (not to worry about the double Mr. Linky post. Most of us are Mr.-Linky-illiterate over at IA, but as soon as Jenn checks in, she can delete the extra one :)

Visiting from IA...I think your humming bird is beautiful. Purple is my favorite color and paired with blue, it is the best. You did a wonderful job, and I think you should start calling yourself a painter!

see you there! said...

Happy to see you at IA, the challenges are fun although I admit I don't get a piece ready to enter every week.
