A couple of new projects
16 x 20 on canvas using spackling for texture:
I'm 'thinking' about giving this to my son for part of his birthday present. My 'baby' will be THIRTY on friday! OMG. I've been inspired by all the pretty bird silhouettes I've seen, where they're on electrical lines, etc. I decided to try a little something different with mine. Leaves!
Also, I started out with one bird who had a beak. Well, the beak looked nasty! So I just added his wife to the painting and now she is snuggling in so close, nobody will see his (my) little issue. :)
I painted two of these. One for an order and one was intended for my brother. The brother who put up with me for a week while I visited in Arizona in March. He's an avid golfer. Actually his wife is too. I usually put the recipient's last name on these stepping stones but in this case, I think it might totally clash with the lettering that's already on this design. This is a design I grabbed out of an old painting magazine. I'll have to run and find out the original artist and add to this post. Must give credit where credit is due :)
I don't think I'll get anymore painting done this week. Tomorrow I need to bake a birthday cake, make coleslaw and paint on my son's front window :)
Friday is a party for him and then Saturday I'm headed out of town for the weekend to attend a wedding. Busy, busy, busy!
I'm hoping to make my rounds tomorrow and visit some of my favorite blogs!! I feel like I'm missing so much in just a couple of days away from them.
