My happy place...

Happy Friday, it's gonna be a great day!  The sun is shining, a friend is headed over to go on a walk with me, and I'm planning to paint! 
I've decided I really like to paint with headphones on.  I can just zone into my happy place without distraction and create.  I'm sharing a painting from an earlier post that I've been working on.  She's still not quite done, but I'm getting close. 
Have fun painting!

I wish you all a happy happy weekend!!!


work in progress

a little more progress, a long way to go.  I really like her so far.

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday!  
I've been in a painting frenzy which means my house is a disaster.  I made a lunch date with a friend today, so I'm gonna try to have things cleaned up before I go.  

I was feeling a little sad that my online class has come to an end, it was so amazing.  Thankfully, the class website will be left up for an entire year!  No one does that, Misty is so generous!  If you ever have a chance to take one of her classes, you really should.  

Ok, I'm turning on some loud music and going into house cleaning mode.  
Thank you for visiting me here! :)

Happy Weekend,

A painting in stages...

I always love watching the evolution of a painting, so I'm sharing a few pics of my latest painting in progress.  
I'm not in love with it yet, so I'll keep making changes until it feels right.

The sun is shining so bright today, it's just what I needed.  
I've been sick and the sun feels like a warm blanket.

Happy Valentines this week♥

This piece is inspired by my Emma.  She is my daughter, my friend, my special to me.
I believe she was heaven sent to be my girl.

I'm planning to start a big painting today.  I've never really gone big before, but I really want to go for it.
One of Misty's assignments this week is to paint BIG.  I have a 22x30 piece of arches watercolor paper gessoed and ready for color!

Sending light and love to you my painting friends!
