I tried a couple of new things with these latest paintings. On the "Boo to You" one I painted the whole canvas a chocolate brown and let it dry before adding other colors. It almost looks like chalk on a chalk board, what do you think?
In the second painting, Mommy is having a party and kitty is NOT invited--is that fair?? I used some India ink to emphasize the details on this one.
I was going through my stuff and found some jewelry supplies I had purchased last year and forgotten about. I spent the afternoon making a few pieces using mini prints of some of my paintings. I will be listing all of these items on Ebay tonight.
The last photo is one I shot of the little "get away in the tree tops" that my daughters built this week with the help of their little brother who is quite handy with the power tools. Yes, my girls are 19 and 21 but they enjoyed this little project and sit up there to watch birds, read, sketch or whatever. Its kind of fun to see them recall their childish spirits again! And yes, Mom, it is really high up there~
