My favorite way of spending an afternoon lately is on my little porch sitting right on the floor painting and stitching the hours away. The kids play in the yard, hunt for frogs, and stop by to lean on me/watch what I'm up to. They like to watch me paint and I hope whoever picks up my talent is taking mental notes ;)
I had a lot of sewn goods backing up, but not getting gesso'd in preparation for painting so yesterday afternoon's mission was to get everything ready for acrylic. Thankfully it all panned out and I now have a hoard of goodies awaiting color and whimsical character.
There is a elephant in the works and he?she (not sure yet) is begging to be zen. Hindu face paint, bells, and eye makeup are in the plans for my floppy eared friend. There is a half moon headed man and his star twin friends. Tiny little wooden figures that resemble the fischer price toys of old, all have white faces and are ready for love. Who knows what they might turn into! As you can see I am very much into day of the dead skulls lately!
If you haven't checked it out yet, Paintingbliss on Etsy is stocking up. Slowly each day I am adding more and more items. I would love for you to stop by, check it out, maybe even give a softie a home. I haven't moved my actual paintings over, but will be soon!
Enjoy your browsing :)
