Beach Dinosaur Needlepoint Canvases 2011

My happy Dinosaurs have gone to the beach with their families, and are now taking strolls down by the surf and sand in these new hand painted Needlepoint Canvases.  Don't ask me what possesses me when I choose to paint dinosaurs enjoying modern life in Dinoland.  These are just fun, colorful, and for all of those needlepoint afficianado's  of everything prehistoric.  I have a few more to do in the series, but I've already resumed painting some of the bird canvases I started a while back.  Plus, I started painting some more chickens and irises just because I felt like it.  I may jump around, but I do try to complete everything in between laundry, dishes, cooking, and every-once-in-a-while cleaning.  There is too much I want to accomplish, and too many things that hold my interest to put much effort into competing for the best little housewife in America award.  There are no prizes in America for being the best little house wife in the world, and no one ever says thank you..."Looks Terrific!!!"  It's better to be a really good cook, and an even better artist and just overlook the "other" woman's work that never gets done.  That's my story...and I'm sticking to it.  Here are the dinosaurs, and a glimpse of some of the canvases in progress"

I've painted this peacock before, but each time I do it I strive to improve the colors and layout.  I like this version the best so far, and I especially like the border.
I will put up some other versions of peacocks for my lovely, female followers in India.  I appreciate you, your art, and your comments.  It's really wonderful to be able to speak to other people from all over this world.  I have plenty of work, but always enjoy more so write when I get work!  Keep drawing, keep painting, think positive, and have a happy, fulfilling, productive day!

Thank you! I like painting and drawing everything God created, and making it cheerful. There is enough bad stuff in this world. I see you like jewelry making and beads and architecture. I will put up some panels I sculpted for GOA Four Seasons Resort in India. I have never been to India, but these sculptures of Elephants were manufactured in Mexico, by my husband, but sculpted by me here in San Diego. I hope you like! Annie
