Strawberries on a Plate

Happy Monday!

Today I would like to say a big warm welcome to Mary H and Happy Dance who have recently joined my blog friends.

They were introduced by Darnell who many of you probably know.  It would be lovely if you are able to pay them a visit and look at their lovely work.

This is a photo of one of the plates I painted when china painting was my main hobby before I started card making.

This is one of 12 plates that I painted for a lady who wanted them to hang on her new dining room wall.  It is a bone china plate and took about ten hours to paint.  I fired it five times.

Thanks for the warm welcome. It's easy to see you are an artist of many talents. What a lovely plate, and if I could paint this well, I probably would never have started stamping! This is beautiful & beautifully done. TFS
