I started four small canvas pieces on Thursday. I am helping my Aunt again this weekend, with her Cricut machine. Helping her learn the design program that goes along with it. It is much like Photoshop but simplified.

More layers on this one. Nine I believe. Not sure if that makes it better or worse. 😉 I am using a small rectangular palette knife, and I really like the size. It is a Painter’s Mark T44. I bought the set at a huge discount. The handle feels solid in your hand, and the blade has a nice bend to it.

For some reason this canvas is reminding me of ice cream. Baskins Robbins Daiquiri Ice, with a little Pralines ‘n Cream melting in. Haha. Maybe it is the Arizona heat.

I also reworked Day 2, following Val’s suggestion to bring more of the dark up higher in the painting. Not sure I succeeded, but I do like it better. You can click an image to see it without the description over the bottom.

Happy JOYful weekend everyone!

    Your description of today’s piece made me chuckle – ice cream – what a hoot!. I do like the addition of the darker tones in the flower piece but you may have overdone it – it is so hard to know when to stop. But I think the pink pops more now.

      Haha, I added a little to the grass, and I thought no… I need to include the blooms. But I think you may be right Val. LOL 🙂
