Thyme to see the first design that I have painted for Painting With Friends. Its called Sunflower the Rooster !

At last ..Sunflower the Rooster
is done and made into an e-pattern!
 I painted this design
Painting with Friends.
You can find the link to purchase
my e-pattern


Terrye French
sent me just a line drawing
I could add or subtact anything from the drawing
choose the colors and how to paint it
I had to write the directions
step by step for the painting
I also had to do all the line drawings for the pattern
with any changes I made
I also had to decide on a piece to paint the design on
this is what I started out with

I found this box at a thrift store.
It looks like maybe an old milk box?

I started to paint
taking notes as  I went along
for the directions

Sunflower the Rooster
coming to life!

Lots of
This was really a fun pattern to paint!
What did it look like finished?
What did I come up with to use this box for?

here is the side of the box

the back of the box
with my signature

a close-up of
Sunflower the Rooster

this is what I put inside the box
some seed and this small scoop I found
at a thrift store

this is what I painted on the cover

this is the finished piece!

I am honored beyond words
to have my name on a pattern
Terrye French!
I look forward to painting more pieces
Painting With Friends
