this painting tried my patience! kind of like my kids do when i'm trying to get them to smile for a picture. but, after many determined hours, i'm a happy girl!!! see some 'in process' stages here and here.
and since we're talking about cameras... check out this tremendously meaningful organization - Lens of Hope.
a dream of a day. so far, nothing but painting. no schlepping kids here and there...yet. no distractions. except the sun. it's tempting! i'm trying to hold strong. music cranked and paint brush in hand. how about you?
i managed to wiggle out time to paint today. and it felt SO good! well, that is... after i got over feeling like i was ruining everything. this piece is far from done, but i'm hoping to show you the finished piece by the end of this weekend!
hi and welcome!!! i'm so glad you're here! my name is michelle. i'm blessed to be a wife (to gary) of 18 years and a mom of two girls; alexis(16) & jess(11). i've been a full time artist for 15 years. i made my start at Portland Sat. Mkt. and art fairs around the country, and then headed into wholesale shows when our oldest began school. i love ART-ing, art journaling, running, cycling and downing junk food!
