I can't wait to add the leaves and finish this. It's 24 x 12, a size that is very 
fun to work with. Finished photo to come soon :)

Precious Family

I made this painting for a dear friend. We did an exchange. She knitted a beautiful sweater for my baby, and I made this painting for her. I love a good creative exchange!

Good morning

I'm feeling grateful for the little things this morning. Creamy coffee in my mug, art supplies galore just waiting for me to come and play. Three kids at home (my oldest doesn't have school today due to the cold!) playing and laughing. A warm home to live in. Our lovely giant bed we call the cloud. Pain medicine that eases my arthritis. Plans for a fun day ahead.

Wishing you a creative day today. Thanks for visiting!

Shop update! And new paintings :)

Hey peeps, I have a couple of new paintings to share :) These were done with heavy body acrylics, and a pallet knife. I love the feel of the paint, and the process of painting with a knife. I am excited to do more.

16 x 20 acrylic on canvas

11 x 14 acrylic on canvas

In other news, I did a shop update to include new goodies. Greeting cards! I'm really happy to share these with you. Right now I have 6 designs available. I've added 5 new painted stones, as well as 3 garlands. Take a look!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend. My oldest has the day off of school tomorrow and we're going to sleep in. Woohoo! Simple pleasures :)
