CHECK THIS OUT!! “Toni” from Erie PA sent me an email last week requesting permission to paint one of my photos! Then I waited to see the wonderful painting that she would create (I just love her paintings on her blog)! . . . . . Yesterday evening while browsing my RSS feeds . . . . I stumbled over this astounding series of paintings she had done on her blog! She did such an amazing job on these cute little Barn Swallows that I needed to blog her posting! . . . . Please check out her blog at A Spattering to see the finished painting! Thanks Toni for making my day with your amazing work!

  5. That is one of my favorite photos. I made my husband come to the computer one day to see it when you posted it because I just thought it was so great! He agreed. And Toni is such a great artist. With the great photo and the great artist it had to be a great painting. She should make prints from that painting.

  8. Toni did a grand job translating that fantastic photo to the canvas. Love those nestlings and their fantastic open mouths.

  15. Oh my gosh. Is that a miracle of creativity. You must feel like a proud parent ;0)

    I love her art – water color is the most difficult medium and she must have a magic wand.
