You can read HERE- my review of this book. I still think it is delightful.
So as I mentioned... here are some paintings I've done... and some of my kids!
(I love it- I love seeing my kids create.) I only have one rule for myself- on this artistic journey. I am determined to only focus on what I DO LIKE about my creations.. and not be critical of the -"over all" project. Because this is me-- playing!
Years ago- I gave up doing art.. because I expected everything I did... be frame worthy. I want a frame-able product when I was done.. and I lost the joy in just playing and experimenting and creating.
So here we go....
I used her paper piecing techniques to give added dimension and depth-- behind the paint. I love that effect!
My first painting.. is inspired by my sand names project.
son two is also inspired by our surroundings-- this is the scene as we drive to hockey every day. And it was funny-- at the time.. I thought, "why is the WHITE on the bottom?" When I think of clouds-- they are in the blue-- or above the blue....
But this weekend- we were driving and I said, "SON! There's your painting!" The clouds were low above the mountains with BRIGHT blue sky above.
