Best Wishes...

So the other day my mom was here.  She is an artist and uses lots of mediums...oils, pencil, charcoal etc...BUT she has never used Copics.  So I handed her my bucket o' copics and she sat down with them.  Now it has taken me some time to get the feel of them.  There is definitely a learning curve to these things...at least for me anyway.  So imagine my surprise when I see she has this complete.....


I told her to drop the Copics and go home! LOL, not really! But ummmm....WOW!!


So this is my flower!  And remember I started this several months ago.  This is NOT my first flower like some people! 



Needless to say, now she is hooked.  She will be buying some in the near future!  I can see this taking off and being a business for her in her Art Gallery!  Maybe she can give me lessons?

  1. Now I know where you get your artistic abilities - your mom! She did do a nice job but so did you. Some people just have a natural knack for recognizing shading and highlights and depths whereas I just see a yellow flower and can't recreate it to save my life. LOL. Great job to both of you! :)

  5. I think both flowers are lovely! I have a very difficult time with shading and highlights, but you have definitely inherited your mother's artistic talent! The border punch you used complements the ruffled edges of the flower perfectly, too!

  19. Gorgeous, gorgeous flowers! I've been feeling really inspired to break out my copics again! I've been so lazy...

  20. Wow! Now to be honest, I think your flower looks just as good as you mom's. My mom is a crafter and she's one of those people that if she buys something, she has to get them ALL. I told her unless she wants to drop hundreds of dollars on markers, to look the other way, LOL
