My Snake Plate with Some Chelsea Birds
Hi, everyone! I returned to Japan from Thailand last night. I had a great great time with my friends, Ingrid and Helga there. I will report the Thai convention later on another blog entry and this time I want to show one of my exhivision pieces.
I ordered the plate online. When I looked at it, I thought it was very unique because it had some relieves of snakes. My Chinese zodiac is a snake and I thought it might be a lucky charm for me. It was true, and I received an award at the Thai convention. I will show my award piece later on another entry too.
My American friend, Dixie loves Chelsea birds and I’ve known she has wanted to paint them. So, I designed the plate for her.
I added some snake scales and it worked out for my snake plate beautifully. When one of my painting teachers, Ivonne Planos looked at my plate, she praised me very much at the Thai convention. I was very happy at the moment. I painted the plate with some pine oil and lavender oil.
When I paint other Chelsea birds, I want to try to paint with some different oil.
