Ta-da. Ta-done. The two paintings above started as playful florals for two toddlers. Then Nana Noni requested having their birth stats added. There are layers of paper and paint, leaf skeletons. Unfortunately, most of that texture is not showing well.

This next one is for the newest addition, Abigail. It’s tiny, ‘cuz she’s teeny. I will do her birth stats soon. She was given her great-grandmother’s name, Viola. So I used violet hues.

This last one is a gift as well. Sort of a house warming.

Now it’s time to go finish the last of my Christmas cards. Meant to send them out Friday. Haha.

There will be a few more of these florals. I am having fun with them. This is showing much warmer here than it is in person. Silly to say, considering the colors I used.

The table is a mix of Yellow Ochre and Quin Gold. But the gold is dominating. I thought about adding some leaves. I added the stems and decided it would be too busy. Day 17 is done.

Everybody born comes from the Creator
trailing wisps of glory.
We come from the Creator with creativity.
I think that each one of us is born with creativity.
