Best Friends

“A ship in port is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.”
– Grace Murray Hopper


Best Friends
5″ x 7″ Acrylic on Canvas

Can you tell I have been enjoying the acrylics a lot lately?  I am lingering in this phase longer than I usually do, but I’m having a great time!

Here is the base coat ….

I also tweaked the Trio of Birds and I am happier with it.  I applied more layers and took the yellow off one of the bird’s feet.

The original post of the birds can be found here.

About Grace Murray Hopper

Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper, the American computer pioneer, was the first woman to become a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society. She was born in 1906 in New York. By age seven, she was taking alarm clocks apart to see how they worked. She worked for the U.S. Navy developing the first compiler, which allowed people to write computer programs in real language rather than machine code. When she found a moth inside a computer, she coined the term “debugging.” She died in 1992.
