Caught my second wind at 11:30 pm. Truth be told it was my first wind. Pulled out the left over paints I have on dishes, and in bowls. I have missed my “colors”. Thought about doing bouquets, but hey, it was almost midnight. So a single bloom on a deep background won out.
Happy little accident in card one. Do you see it? Indigo ran amuck.
Feel so much better now that I painted. Caught up on some “work” reading today. Found some glitches I had to fix in my Society6 shop. Still some to address. Amazing how long the “little” things can take! The server will be down for a few hours tonight. The internet company is upgrading or some such. So my apologies in advance if you had a hard time reaching this site.
I found that I had not posted these photos of our last snow. About two weeks ago now. Maybe three. I love how you can see the mounds of earth that formed eons ago. Those are not always visible. Both of these were taken on the same day, within a 20 minute time span.
More catching up, I finished this project last week. I have been working on a design assignment, and fell behind on posting. Take a look at my new “Inspiration board”. There will be a larger board on the wall next to this.
Ahhh… art on the wall!
Remember those cork trivets? Hung them with Command strips.
It’s here!! The LYA swap begins soon! Kat posted more envelope art. Really cool, what everyone has been up to. Click the image to visit Kat’s site. Next week art will arrive!
Our first Christmas eve in Arizona was gorgeous! A day we won’t soon forget. It was my brother and his wife’s first Christmas together. And her first time seeing snow. Beautiful HUGE fluffy flakes. The flakes became larger the longer it snowed.
Sunset was heavenly. Take a look.
Mingus on Christmas Eve.
I completely missed the mark on what I was trying to do with this painting. Working wet on wet, to create soft flowing colors in the sky. My first washes did flow together nicely. I just went over board with the clouds.
Cloud Close Up
Even so, I really like the almost 3-D effect I accidentally created in the clouds. My apologies for the terrible photo. I couldn’t get the scan to show true. There is a bit of soft blue on the hills, and field. Not showing well here.
I framed this and gifted it to my bother and his wife. Merry first Christmas!
Only four days until Leslie’s January 30 Paintings In 30 Days painting challenge begins!
