Thanks, everyone! Cheesy

The paintings both measure 20 x 16 inch and are on stretched canvas.

I don't know about you, but I am pretty sure whales are magic creatures and should rank right up there with dragons and unicorns. Smiley Here are a couple of my "whimsical surreal" whale paintings showing what I think whales are up to when we're not looking.

I brushed a metallic bronze colored paint over it to give it that metallic look. Paper  mache does take a lot patience and it is VERY messy! I will be sure to post a pic of the piggy after Christmas. Cheesy

For Christmas every year, everyone in my family draws a name from a hat and has to make that family member a homemade gift. This year, I got my dad's name, who just so happens to be a collector of piggy banks (he has over 500 of them) and I decided to  make one for him (eek!).

This is not a piggy bank -- it's a fox mask Smiley. It's is my first attempt at paper mache (I needed to practice before making the piggy bank), and I had a lot of fun making it. I used a balloon and cardboard as the form and painted it with acrylics. It's currently hanging above my art table and I plan to make a whole assembly of woodland masks to go along with it.

I already wrapped the piggy bank and it's sitting under the tree (I forgot to take photos!).

These are wonderful! I have been wanting to try using wax in some of my mixed media pieces, and now that I've seen yours, I am definitely taking the plunge! They are lovely! Cheesy

Sometimes, I draw birds. Wink These are a few that I have drawn recently. They're a little different than my usual style, which makes them fun and challenging. Smiley
