My week in review
I'm experimenting again with abstract style. I painted this large 30 x 24 canvas the other night. I painted the hydrangea and while the paint was still wet, I sprayed it with my water bottle. It turned out kind of cool I think?
Here it is leaning on top of my entertainment center to show you the size. I've been experimenting with Epoxy Resin finish and I'm thinking I might want to coat this one to really make the colors pop. I'm just scared to do a piece this large. We'll have to wait and see how gutsy I get :)
It was my son, Josh's birthday on Tuesday. My baby turned 25! I made him these Chocolate Caramel cupcakes. YUM!
Last weekend Dale and I went to Alexandria, MN to visit with my brother and his wife. We visited the Carlos Creek Winery and had a wonderful time. I loved it! This is a picture of a grape cluster I was able to capture. I would love to paint it someday.
Another pic from the winery.
Well, lots to do the next 24 hours and then Dale and I are taking my Dad to visit my other brother in Minneapolis for the weekend. We got some AWESOME tickets to see a Twins baseball game in the new outdoor Target Field.
This summer has been so busy with running non-stop and I'm actually looking forward to fall and settling back down into more of my normal routine. I miss painting so much and NEED to get back to it on a regular basis. It 'completes' me :)
Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
