I was thinking I was going to do the Dr. Who Tardis or Toothless from How to Train your Dragon ... until I came across this:
At first, I thought it was a fat little baby humming bird because of the colors and the pointy beak. But its not, its actually a Narrow-billed Tody from the Dominican Republic.
I needed no assistance during the class - I just grabbed the paints and off I went. I guess I did inherit my grandmother's genes ... because she painted wonderful things, I have one of her paintings in my living room. I think though that I need a little (or a lot) more practice before I get to her level.
I am very happy with my painting and my little bird. It looks a bit nicer in person because the background colors don't look quite so stark and brush strokey like the camera picks up.
