Can't see the forest...

I had finished this painting a while ago...months and months, but today my friend and I sanded and painted it's frame. It's looking lovely and I'm feeling especially handy having used so many tools today:) Here are some more of the baby pict.s ...hopefully.

I think I've finished the tulips..happy anniversary C and D wish I could have given you a pile of diamonds or something. Isn't that the 15 year gift?

Sleepless in St. louis

I have been sleeping day and night literally for the last five days. I guess that's all over now because I woke up at three this morning with paint on the brain. My sister had suggested I try a line of baby room paintings for my etsy site, so I painted a few and re-worked some old ones. I also experimented with some different acyrlic mediums ie: gels and pastes, to achieve some textural effects. I'm thinking about incorporating some fabrics into some of the baby paintings. Oh, I couldn't get all of the baby ones uploaded, you'll have to see them on etsy...if I can figure THAT out:)

Spring in my step:)

I started this piece a few weeks ago and thanks to a sick day and rainy weather, I've finally been able to work on it a bit more. I'm not sure how pleased I am with the composition.I'll make some changes soon. J says it's "old lady colors". All I know is that I'm in LOVE with spring this year and want to keep it around as long as possible. I am excited to see how it turns out and I'll post an "after" picture soon.
