Hello and Happy Saturday! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
Until next time:)
So, I know I said I was ready to begin painting that one painting, you know the one, again. Truth is, I don’t know if I ever will be.
I started out thinking I would challenge myself to paint is as photo realistially as possible.
But, I can’t stand painting photo realistically.
The few times I have tried, I nearly pulled my hair out. And this is no exception. I think I may re-paint that dreaded painting it a way I am more comfortable with. But that will have to wait.
Here is a little painting I did while avoiding work on the big bad one. I did a few of these, so I will be sharing them over the next few weeks.
So, here is the first.
It was such a relief painting so loosely. I get so wound up painting the “other way”. But at least I have learned my limits.
Until next time friends!
As you may remember, I was working on a rather large painting and getting very very very very frustrated. So I took a break. I still wanted to paint, just not that painting.
This is what I have finished/ begun since.
Remember this one? Here it is.
And just for fun, I started this. It is all of 5 by 5 inches and there is no pressure.
There you are friends!
I will be back Friday:)
First off, I want to say thank you everybody for the overwhelming response I’ve had to Monday’s post. I really didn’t expect to get that many hits! So, thank you.
Also, I have finally gotten around to doing a minor “revamp” to my Etsy shop, in addition to adding a few new things, see…
And in a post of Shameless Self Promotion (it is my blog isn’t it? :)), I figured I would celebrate Monday’s DIY post‘s success AND my Etsy shop hitting the 100 heart mark with a coupon. That’s right, a discount. Until Monday (when I have another DIY popping up), enter “100Hearts” at checkout and receive 15% off your order. Because I love you!
Have a great and wonderful rest of your day!
Oh and while I am at it, maybe you wanna stop by and “Like” my Facebook page??? Huh?
I did it. I didn’t slack. I finished it ALL.
Last Thursday, I sat down and plowed through the last 5 blank pages in my Sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project. See?
And guess what else? I already shipped it.
Look at me go!
Have a wonderful day and I will be back tomorrow. I am working on a couple more DIY’s to share, so cross your fingers they turn out:)
I love tea. Especially when it is steamy, spicy and orangey. There is nothing like it when it is both cold AND windy outside. I can’t stand wind. I take it as a personal affront when it sneaks up on me and musses my hair.
But that is neither here nor there. What I am really here to share are a few more pages from my Sketchbook Project. Hopefully I will finish it today, or maybe in my laziness I will *forget* to do the last few pages. Oh, come on. I doubt I am the only person doing the project to think that.
Here are the lovebirds I keep on doing. What a sweet motif.
Well I am off to finish my tea and get some work done. Until tomorrow!
