I had a GREAT weekend!
I made it to Paint Party Friday evening,
arriving late although I think that is fashionable, right?
Got up early Saturday morning and had coffee while visiting as many of the Friday party attendees as I could. Saw some fantastic artist bloggers and gained a couple followers too!
Sunday was beautiful, warm and sunny. Little N and I went outside and set up art areas.
I was planning on finishing up my flower painting.
Little N was finishing up her "color me" tote bag I made for her.
This tote has been her favorite coloring project and I think I have discovered a great gift for girls. I plan on making several more and put them out on my Etsy Store.
It started getting a little windy and I found one of my hairs in the center of a flower I was painting!
Ahhh!!!! That was worse than finding a hair in my food.
I have no idea why it bothered me so much but I was disgusted until I got it out of the think mix of paint and soft gel medium.
Time to get the painting out of the springtime breeze.
I had my spray paints outside with me and needed to make more flower petals with darker paint, so I sprayed three paper towels.
They came out great. I'm not sure if I can cut any of these up since these colorful papers would make some great backgrounds!
I was having so much fun spray painting that I sprayed a 13"X13"X3" canvas tote:
Pretty Cool and lots of fun. I love projects that I can finish fast. I guess it's that instant gratification that drives my art. I need to keep several projects going, or at least my art journal close by if I have to wait for something to dry!
After laying down for several hours, I really needed to doodle something. I grabbed my Progresso Woodless Graphite Pencil (my favorite) and began a new Forest Faerie drawing on heavy watercolor paper so I can paint her later:
The night and weekend ended as I fell asleep drawing...
So how was your weekend?
Hope your week is starting off full of color and imagination!
