Bird - Cat - Dog : You have 3 Choices

In the backyard shooting, and lucky enough to have a Northern Mockingbird visit to warn us away from her nest area - one of the cats and my dog were not impressed.

Palms - lovely work, as always!

Lyle - I wish I could explain to Honey that she is now a constellation of stars in the sky -- she would be honored, if she could understand. You always surprise me! As for Toffee's electric Fractal fur, I'm glad that I don't have to worry about combing that!

Helen, Honey thanks you and is waiting to see your painting of her.
Nancy - we're both lucky enough to have birds visiting close by.

Toffee insisted that I do her first, so here she is ...

Okay, Honey - you're next ! The bird flew away, so I guess she won't insist that I hurry with her portrait...

Very cool results CJ; guess the bird didn't get any of your time since your kids took all that attention. lol

Anyway, decided to go ahead and stitch your bird. Again, thanks for the play CJ.
