The New Girl

I wanted to tell you how thankful I am for the out reached hand I've had into your charming circle. Being the new girl feels a lot better here than it does on most early September days. I'm so excited for this extra push to pull out the paints. This seemed like the perfect inaugural post. I am humbled to be in your ranks.

OOOOH Amber!! MY,my,my! Talk about a captured moment!!! OH I just felt a wonderful hush come over the whole room when the new girl walked in he he he! This is simply wonderful!!! You nailed it! Wonderful work indeed. Very beautiful and filled with nice flow and color and much emotion. You took me back to when I was the new girl at school. Great work.

Amber--we are proud to have you & your wonderful work with us and what a great image to start with! I was the "new girl" three times in high school & too many times to count in elementary. Love your colors, love the animation--very good!

Hi girls! Thanks for your sweet comments. This is an illustration I wouldn't have ever tackled without this week's challenge. The motivation to finish stuff to post is going to keep me painting all week. I'm so excited to be a part of this fun club. Thanks for the warm welcome!

Linda, I cannot imagine being the new girl in high school, especially more than once! You must be very brave.
