Painting and other work

Hi All, I have been very quiet and not getting as much done as I would like but I have managed to nearly finish a painting I had started last year that is being purchased by a friend for her Mother. It is a Bird of Paradise on a dark background and so far the consensus is that it looks good with the dark green background as it make the vibrant colours of the flower stand out. I am just waiting for my girlfriend to get back to me and if she is happy it is off to the framers and then off to her. Another job completed. I am also working on a sculpt for my daughters boyfriends mother. He is looking good but going very slowly.
I am teaching at the school twice a week now and hopefully the kids are getting as much out of the class as I am. I will try to get some pictures to post of the kids and their progress.

I am getting back into the swing of things and will hopefully have more work to show off and finish some UFO's too. The dragon bust is calling me still and I need to figure out how I am going to do his spines, spikes and teeth. I want something that will last and be very strong. I want to do more paintings and feel the urge to try a landscape. I will keep you all posted on that venture.
Take care and let me know what you think of both the pieces I am working on. It's nice to have some feedback on my work.
Love and hugs
