I have a new avatar!  I painted it the other day to go along with my new name.   It was done quickly so don’t critique it. 😆

You know what we want  Bill

And thank goodness you mentioned no gators as this version would have been most unfortunate  Bill

I love it!  Lol

I saw the photo of yourself at 15 that you posted the other day, and forgive me for saying so, but Vivian Leigh could only hope to look so lovely.

How about a scarlet letter “A”? Err....might send the wrong message. 😄

I feel like I want to ask for an avatar, but I have no idea what it would be!  And my username doesn’t offer any creativity.  

I picture a woman sticking out her tongue. Like this: :tongue:

Very accurate!  It’s my default expression.  😄  Ok, maybe not default, but it’s definitely a frequent expression on my face.  It runs in the family.  My dad and grandfather and cousin and brother all do it.

@sangtarah has a new avatar, I think? Did I miss it somehow that Spy Car created this? If you did, Spy Car, I love it!! If not, please take that as a compliment, Sangtarah, because Bill has been cranking out some really nice avatars. If you did this yourself, I wanted to say how much I love it. It just caught my eye, and I wanted to say how awesome  that is.

Thanks! It’s actually a favorite painting I own!  I figured out how to make it my avatar way before the Big Board Upgrade, so I’m glad it transferred, lol. 😆

I think that might be worse than a southern slave owner character.  Lol

I love them! Who knew!

There is a grandiflora rose called Scarlett O'Hara. I am not able to find its picture. It is crimson red, almost black.

Oh Bill @Spy Car if it's not too late or too bold to ask, I'd like a new one too. I periodically change to add family or pets, but something that reflects my user name would be great. I love my state, warts and all and especially love the amazing biodiversity that most people aren't aware of because of the theme parks, crowded beaches and Florida Man. So, something Florida nature-y with the added aristocracy of the Lady Florida name. No gators please. This FSU alumna would not like that.

@Spy Car !!!

What do you think?! *twirls in new clothes* I'll admit I was a bit afraid to change just because I had given myself this huge pep talk about liking the gold and I do type design so really I should stick with a letter anyway, LOL. Then I come to the boards and see this!! Oh my. The moon as the circle thing looks stunning to me. ❤️ 

Many thanks, I'm a whole new moonhawk! literally 🙂

I am so glad I read this thread. I had been noticing new avatars and getting confused. 😄

I've thought about changing mine, just because I'm tired of it. I kind of want to make a quilled purple owl and then use that. But I haven't made progress on my current quilling project in a while, so who knows how long it would take me to get around to making an owl.

Thank you so much !

I love flowers and three have meaning for me. 

Blue bonnets because TX and I love seeing them.

Jasmine because it is my favorite flower and one of my names.

Lotus because it is the national flower of India. It also blooms in the mud and so a symbol of triumphing in adversity. 

I do not have the imagination so I would love any, two or all. 

Thank you once again.

 

 

I'm quoting this, because I'm eager to see what @Spy Carmakes for you!

@Dreamergal

I've been scouring the internet for days looking at images of bluebonnets (many nice choices) and lotus photos (which are ridiculously good) but it is  this simple elegant Jasmine flower w buds that is the one that keeps resonating as the one I'd pick.

If you feel the same, it's yours. Otherwise, I have other options.

Do adjust "the crop" if you use this one.

Would something like this suit you?

I did like your old one (and keenly enjoy typography and type design as art forms) so feel free to enjoy this one as long as you like, but don't hesitate on my account to replace it with a type design of your own anytime.

It is all just for fun.

I know, right? It is the logo for the old hot rodder Dean Moon from back in the olden days.

Still laughing at whiplash. I don’t know why, but I laughed all day when I saw that.

@Indigo Blue, do you figure this thread needs a new name? 😄 Or is it funnier as is?? 

I’m actually a bit embarrassed to have started a thread with that title. What should I change it to? I’m not really funny, so I would just make it worse.

I dunno, my mind keeps jumping to Bill as Oprah, lol. But there are probably better things...

I will, then. Cause you probably don’t want “Spy Car’s Avatar Shop” or anything like that. Maybe you saw that coming and nipped it in the bud.

LOL
