Just a quick fly by and share…
Sunday, August 14th, 2022

Of course, I was working on other writers’ projects yesterday. Then my dd, SIL, and the 18-year-old went to a concert in Hot Springs, which left me with the little ones (9 & 13—so technically, not that little 🙂 ) to babysit. Because I would be away from my computer, I set up at the kitchen table to paint. It’s soooo relaxing, and I don’t get to do it often enough. I have an art show to prepare for that happens in September, so I guess this is really “work” but it sure didn’t feel like it.

This one is 6×9. Smallish. (My preferred size actually, because I can complete one quickly.) I played with the colors. Don’t you love that brown at the bottom? The color I mixed granulated as it dried. I tried to make the pot look like a pinch pot—you know, with the fingerprints showing on the side. Not sure that came across. Maybe it just looks blotchy. LOL

Then I painted a quick postcard with some shiny peach mixed with red paint for the flowers. My favorite part is the pot. I dotted the reddish peach on the side of the vase as the shadowed part. The colors are ones I love.

Anyways, you see what I do when I’m not writing or editing. I think I’ll be doing more of it. Practice makes, if not perfect, better.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

    I particularly like the second one. I think it is the colours.

    I think every one that I’ve seen that you’ve posted has been fantastic. I’d like to be able to paint. Nothing fancy…just for something to do for fun. Maybe next time my Granddaughter gets the paints out, I’ll give something a try.

    Thanks so much for your kind comments! And Beverly. Don’t be afraid to make ugly art. It’s how you learn. I have tons of stuff that ended up cut into bits to use in collage. 🙂
