Inspired by a fence.....an Emu to watch over me!

I was looking outside my bathroom/ensuite window the other day and, there in the fence, was an Emu staring back at me. Can you see it? Or am I the only one with a quirky imagination? It's there........I swear it!


Anyhow, I was quite fascinated with the emu watching over me so I felt inspired to draw one and here is the result using the fence image as my initial guide.

  9. Hi Serena, Thanks for visiting my blog tonight :) When I finish my flamenco lady I thought I might email you the picture, as I'm not planning to post it onto my blog till after the competition. I was wanting to keep it a surprise from my local friends. Is this ok?
    regards,
    Maria
