There are 65 items subblimimally hidden in this painitng.

This is the No. 115Th painting in my 365/2010 series.
Size: 18X28 inches
Medium: Watercolor on 140lb. DeArches 100% rag paper.
Look closely, this painting has about 65 different things hidden in it. This is one of my anniversary type paintings. This one was done for Mr. William R. Burke, 70Th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BILL!!!!! I hope you like your painting. This painting sums up 70 years of Bill's amazing life. There are 5 dates hidden in this painting. from birthdays and wedding dates of Bill and his wife. there are about 35 names of children, grandchildren and very special people in Bill's life. Accomplishments of Bill's life are hidden by images representing certain aspects of his life. For instances If you look closely in the lower left corner you will see in the tall grass a faint image of a Blue Devil representing one of the many schools Bill has been associated with. See if you can find a ducks head ( not including the three that are flying as the main subjects of the picture. a book representing the teaching career. a blue ribbon for his best husband, father and grandpa status. a pencil for his authorship. a total of about 65 different things.
Bill and his favorite dog Thor are show in the grass on the lower right hand side of the piece.
There is an enlargement of the Blue Devil show in this post.
I do hope you like this piece, and I don't advertise these BUT you can get one done for any occasion.
I hope you like what I'm trying to do.
Comments and/or remarks are appreciated.
