the Raven and Japan

Hey Friends, OK, here is my beautiful Raven and one messy small greenish blob. I'm always surprised how quick and easy these guys are to paint. Kinda like cows. I like the yellow background. I was shootin' for happy. Makes me happy!
Now this one is a happy painting too. I'm going to list it in the Daily Paintworks challenge. ALL the funds raised will go to help out in Japan. Isn't it wonderful they figured out how to set this up so quickly? David Marine is his name so go check out the site and buy something !!
Now what do ya think of this painting? You supposed to paint something that reminds you of home. These are the mountains here in SW Virginia and the Roanoke River. I painted it as if I were in the top of a very tall tree, looking over Greenhill Park, because that park is close to home. Obviously the rest is a good dream.
Happy Trails.

I think the Raven might be one of my favorites (even with the poor frog).

You've got great legs in the second one.

Hi Katheleen, Thanks. I'm glad to hear you reacted as I wanted. I've been enjoying your new blog AND the gorgeous jewelry you put so much thought into.

Hallie, Never would have thought you'd go for something so colorful.The second one is my GranBabe and she does have gorgeous legs. Thanks a bunch.

Did either of you check out the DPW Jap. auction? Finally got mine on there.
