It´s a bird!
It´s a plane!
No, it´s a Michelle-Allen-influenced-by-Jesse-Reno-artwork!!
It actually does look a bit like a bird to me, and I keep thinking of strawberries, even though they look more like candy-kane-drops. Your colors are different. Darker, more muted, warm. I am very excited to see what this turns out to be!


Tapping my pencil, cracking my knuckles, wiggling my toes in anticipation of your new website and announcement of Artfest classes! Content waiting however, as long as you keep sharing your art! LOL


Can hardly wait to see what it becomes... am loving your new art... you go girl!

So colorful! So fun :) I needed that inspiration for some empty canvases that I have stacked up waiting for something to wear other than white.

Can't tell where you are headed - but I find backgrounds as wonderful as the finished product. I love working on backgrounds because they don't need to be "organized" and only I know just what lies underneath :).


I don't know where your going with it,
but I can tell it will be amazing!!

God Bless You and Yours!!!
