Yippee! I enjoyed a snow day today! Since I work for the public schools, I got an unexpected day to do as I please~~I finished up two painting that I started a while back. The first one is a large 11"X14" of a kitty with a bouquet of roses. There is lots of texture on this using layers of heavy acrylic and stamping for extra interest. The vase was created with vintage sheet music from an 1800's book. I seem to gravitate to these rich colors over and over when I paint!
The second painting is actually a 3D piece of art! I crafted a little fabric rose with felt leaves and sewed it right onto the canvas in the little girl's arms! Two little kittens frolic at her feet. I will be listing both of these on Ebay soon!
After a wonderful snowy day of doing what I want, I am going to settle in with some of my favorite things, an interesting documentary, an art book (just got from Amazon) and well...something else to warm the soul...Have a glorious evening!
I am a self taught artist who has always enjoyed creating anything from a flower garden to the perfect meal. Now that my children, (ages 23, 26, and 27) are all grown up, I have more time to create! I also work 4 days a week during the school year with special needs preschoolers--which I dearly love! The children in my life inspire many of my paintings.
