Daffodils and turtles

Here's a sample of todays work..turtle and daffodils. I honestly tried making a cane, pushing it into a mold and then layering green clay on top. It looked like I made a cane, mushed it in and layered good clay after I got angry yelling to the sky for no apparent reason other than being frustrated "why can I not make a cane???" Of course there was no the mushed clay got threw in the mold anyways...and now I like it!!! It has veins of gold running thru it and its perfect turtle colors...which is what Miss Bobbi wanted to begin with. The daffodils are another story. Bobbi and I belong to an elite group spanning the States and Europe. Doesn't that sound fancy? Truth be known we met others playing an online game and all became close of which we will be meeting in May. Our little group is called The Golden Daffodils. So in honor of our friend visiting and our group, I got up this morning to tackle the daffodil..thank you Miss Bobbi for the picture of daffies...sure did make life easy for me to make these. Of course there were, I think last count 15 or 17 more faces made but, since the painted ladies are not dressed yet they refuse to pose for pictures...the one with the daffodils only held still cause her identity was hidden...picky lil things they have become! You would think someone thats only an inch and 3/4 long and an inch wide would not be so sassy with a 5 foot five painter...but they do have their I must protect it. I got all the household things out of the way today so I could just paint tomorrow...Hoping to have some to show for you tomorrow night. Have a great evening and I hope to see you here...same time, same channel!!!
