Work in progress & I've been tagged!

Just thought I'd post a little something I'm working on. These girls need much more detailing, shading, etc. but we're comin' along. This canvas is on it's third life. I first did a pair of green apples on a branch. Looked great in my head and on the background I applied? Not so much. It clashed, big time. Sanded down and started over.

Next in line was my attempt at doing a woman with darker skin tones. I've discovered I know absolutely nothing about dark skin tones, being the pale woman of Norwegian descent that I am. I felt sorry for her and sanded her away too with the sincerest of apologies.

Not sure where this one is going yet. Mother/daughter theme for sure, just not sure on the title and phrasing I'll decide on at this point. Maybe these two angels should represent the two previous paintings on this canvas that have been laid to rest :)

Have a wonderful day everybody! It's dreary here, a little rainy and to top that off I have two funerals to attend in the next two days. I've been a little down about turning 50 the end of the month but after 3 funerals in the past 30 days, I'm going to appreciate every year I'm given ♥

Thank you SO much Julie-Ann from Heavenleigh Art for tagging me!

It's hard to pick unimportant things that make me happy so I'm going to include some very important choices too ♥

1. My children
2. My Mieko man (fur kid)
3. finding money in the dryer (it was more fun when others lived with me, now it's just my own, so big whoop)
4. Painting a canvas once without having to sand it all off
5. Bulldogs (the drink!)
6. Melted cheese.....on just about anything

6 tagged bloggers..........

This is going to be absolutely fantastic.

This is gorgeous already...I love their serene faces.

I know what you mean about 'dryer money' almost makes laundry worthwhile.
