seems to be the lot in life for many of us lol nice pic though... those watchers might be looking for field mice!
Ginnie Hart: Eyes wide open and not seeing a thing. I'm trying to pay better attention this year. smile

I love the selective colouring and it is almost that either they are 'hanging' on for dear life or they are ready to attack....
Wonderful presentation.
Ginnie Hart: It seemed a good time to be "selective" again, MLMA. HA! Thank you.
The selective colouring is perfect here Ginnie! Well done.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Richard. I was just itching to do it again. smile

Very interesting, especially as they are painted Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Maybe it gave the monks something to do, Chris??? For me, it's reminding me of my coloring books. smile

The colouring looks almost out of place; quite gawdy in some ways. I like the look on the birds' (?) faces?
Ginnie Hart: It totally surprised me, Alan, for the reasons you've stated. I've decided the monks had a heyday! smile
Clinging on for dear life too by the look on their faces Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I do believe you're right, Chad!

Beautiful highlighting sculptures and colors - Have a good day
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pat. The colors quite surprised me!
jolis détails! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
They are eargle-eyed for sure.
Ginnie Hart: I wonder what they see???
This works very nicely with the colour popping you've done in this.
Ginnie Hart: I must have been itching to do another selective coloring, Brian?!
eagles seem to be occupying most coats of arms in Germany, Ginnie. well spotted
Ginnie Hart: Must be those Romans, Ayush???! smile

Great picture and presentation. Those chickens holding up the corners, really look worried that they could fall off.
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure they like what they see, Louis?!
it's seldom that they paint the capital portion of a column Ginnie... looking up is always a good thing....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I know, Peter. I was so surprised!

Great job with the colouring! Really helps the details to stand out in the sculpture! Oh, how I'd love to visit Germany!
Ginnie Hart: It was such a surprise to see that color, Emily, which made the selective coloring a no-brainer for me. You'd love Germany.
You haven't grown tired of colouring books and started on churches have you Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: HA! Good one, Bill. smile
Rather gaudy!
Ginnie Hart: The monks must have needed something to do, Tom???
Ha ha.. I have to say the colour blue is a very bad choice.
Without it, we all know it's 100% German! Ha ha...
Ginnie Hart: What were those monks thinking??!!

It is lovely to see the stonework painted. Old abbeys, chapels and churches were originally decorated internally with paint which has long since disappeared.
Ginnie Hart: I've learned something new from you, Cherry. I suppose the monks, then, helped to maintain the original appearance?!
So colorful! And yes...as if it's one of your colorings!
Ginnie Hart: I guess I noticed it because of my coloring, Robin. It actually quite surprised me. Cherry has just told me that old abbeys, chapels and churches were originally decorated internally with paint which has long since disappeared. I guess the monks here have committed themselves to maintain the original paint jobs?
First, terrific selective colour.
Second, they are a little odd and cartoonish but I love them.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I just learned from Cherry that old abbeys, chapels and churches were originally decorated internally with paint which has long since disappeared. I guess the monks here have committed themselves to maintain the original paint jobs?

Wonderful image, Ginnie, I love the contrast and expression. It's been in my mind since I saw it those two days ago!
Ginnie Hart: How sweet and kind of you, Petra. Thank you.
I love the coloring, Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Elizabeth. I guess the monks had nothing better to do?! smile
