She's swimming in space - waiting to evolve past the sketch stage. Did you know the scales on the shell of the turtle are called scutes? Scutes are made of the same thing as our nails... and horse hooves. - Joyce Brandon

Finally complete! I am so happy to introduce you to "Tortoise Moon." She took some time to decide her details... But I am so happy with the results! I tried to upload her and post last night, but blogger seemed to be having a problem.
Of course, in order to get a good image of the whole 11x14 painting I had to scan it in halves and paste them together in PSP. It doesn't have that line down the middle in person! Here is a close-up of the old girl herself so you can see her without the distraction...
Tomorrow I'll be posting more detail scans on the Works In Progress page of my website joycebrandon.com - thanks for visiting! Joyce Brandon

I didn't like the blue - I wanted it to be warm and dry - so here's where I am now! I am quite pleased with how she is turning out.
I'm searching for a good digital camera, specifically for photographing my paintings. Something that will still allow me to afford groceries for the next three weeks! Any ideas?
My husband's parents sent $$ for his birthday and he finally got the 12 gauge he's been wanting. He actually lucked out and got a top of the line Mossberg for a great price.
Let's see... What else is up? The weather is DIVINE today. Must be near 70 and all the robins and blackbirds and finches and starlings and sparrows are filling the yard. Arround here, seeing a robin is a harbinger of spring... but I don't really get the fever until I start hearing the red-winged blackbirds sing!
Have a Beautiful weekend - Joyce Brandon
