Animal Wednesday (#5)

This ACT I made yesterday. A starfish is an animal isn´t it? So perfect for Animal Wednesday. They come in all sorts of colors and shapes. Here is one in the middle of Jeske´s mandala. The seahorses I painted from an image I found on the internet, so not excactly my design.... Shame on me, that I don´t know who´s it is, so I can´t mention it.... It is one of my first mandalas so I didn´t think about that then. now I only paint from pictures and when I know the source I will ask for permission and mention the artist. As I did with the foliosa coral I used below. A blue starfish in Isa´s mandala, which also has a lot of water elements in it. Is is a cancer. And in this ATC, which is one of my favorites. I love starfish ever since I was a child, they have something magical. How about you? Happy Animal Wednesday!!!! PS I found another one.....

  12. Hi Marianne
    It's me tweedles. I was so excited when i came to visit you and you had painted pictures of my friend Star who i found last year on the Oregon Coast and she told me about Puff the magic Seahorse, that I am going looking for in 8 days! I thought that was so cool and your painting of them is so gorgeous.
    Isn't that something you painted them? They are on my last bloggieL last weekend.
    I hope they look like that when I go see them next week! So colorful.
