Decision made

Thanks for the input on my two Lorikeet color pieces. After seeing how each looks along with the others, it seemed quite clear to me that what was missing in my first piece, though I am quite fond of it, is the color that was the point of the challenge. I even had an anonymous commenter who said I had gotten it all wrong, and maybe she (he?) was referring to both of my pieces, but I think the first is the more wrong one. So "Night Garden" is my official work for this challenge.

But just for laughs I decided to have a little fun with the "Oh, those colors" piece. I hope Brenda doesn't mind that I used her lorikeet photo. I couldn't resist. It was perfect.

ROTFLMAO!!! How am I going to get to sleep now. I am having a laughing fit.

If you hear lorikeet-like squawking, it's just me! Brilliant!

Sorry you felt you had to choose the brighter one. Yes, it fits in nicely in the thumbnail collection but I actually thought the paler one was a masterful interpretation and got quite excited when I saw it.

Love the cartoon.

Well that's a great blog post to read just before I start work -I shall be chuckling all day! Although I do like the subdued one very much

Oh Terry....I'm sitting here drinking my morning coffee and waking up and came across your altered photo. What a hoot! Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh.

Very funny!

You are a great sport!

Those lorikeets are too too funny. Personally, I don't think it's so much that the colors are wrong, but more that the proportions are different. I think Night Garden is the right choice for the group, but I still maintain that Oh Those Colors is the more interesting interpretation -- made all the better by the addition of those cheeky lorikeets!!!

I'm ROTFLMAO too. :-)

Very good.

Thank you for the smile! Maybe your lorikeet has just been out in the sun and dust too long.

I'm curious if the piece would work as well with the BRIGHT lorikeet colors.

Look at all the fun I have missed! And look at your quilt. And my quilt. Twins :)
The cartoon is great, mate!
