first painting in a while
greetings from my corner of the world! i have missed this. my hands want to create. i took time off from that, and now i'm feeling glad to pick up a paintbrush again.
this little painting above was a gift for jennifer, my friend sarah's adorable three month old daughter. i based it on the colors of jennifer's nursery, and adapted the style from monogram paintings i had made for my niece and my nephew's girlfriend. i really like these paintings and i'm thinking of making some more to sell. also - painted initial pendants. i'm drawn toward pure painting rather than mixed media lately. i drawn to paint in general - did i mention that i've missed this?
i hope to fill this space with some more colorful goodness soon. i know that time seems to move more quickly than ever and i just want to slow it down, to make time for everything i want to see and do and read and make and try. and to stay well rested while doing it. and to keep up with responsibilities. i think this is something most of us feel. i had a milestone birthday last month and that emphasizes all of this even more.
the paints and canvases are waiting. it's time to start painting again!
