Not quite what I wanted.....

Months ago I decided to make a gift for each of my nieces and nephews. My last gift, until the next baby is born, is for Ava. A week ago I painted a bowel for her. I picked it up today but was disappointed with how it turned out.

The yellow and brown both turned out the wrong shade. I am currently deciding whether to give it to her and her parents or make a new one. I don't know; what does everyone think?

What's wrong with it, I think it looks fine.

I guess it's hard to say what the true color is from a picture and various computer screens, but I think it's cute. I'd use it. Especially if my name were Ava.

If my monitor is showing the colors accurately, I like it. It has a retro sort of look to it.

I like the uniqueness of each of these bowls you've done. The boys both love their special bowl. Every time I get those bowls out for the boys, I feel ever-so-slightly jealous and wish that I had a whole cupboard full of them - each one with its very own personality. Let me know if you are interested in being commissioned . . .

love it.

Ooh, I love it! The yellow looks like it matches the other yellow bowls we have. So, as Ava's mother, I'd say it's a keeper.

Well, since Ava's mother has given it the seal of approval, I don't think what I say matters, but I think it is lovely.

Wow; that's the last time I doubt myself.
