Playing with Color

This little birdie expresses my sentiments exactly.  Just as little time creating at my sewing machine puts me in my happy place–something I haven’t had time to do a lot of lately.love-to-sew-originallogo

As with my last post, I’ve playing with the color on the computer.   The above painting is the original.    Below is the computer enhanced version.  I do kind of like the brighter colors which I can’t seem to create as well with watercolor.   love-to-sew-brightlogo

Day 2 of 30 Do What You Love

Day 2 and I am already behind!  As you can see, I’m not finished.  I just had to get to bed before I could finish painting this.  I hope I can get caught up tomorrow.  Only 28 more days to go!

Lightning Bolt Music

The mascot for my new school is the “lightning bolt”–kind of unusual, I know.   So I have been designing a school music website and have painted some things to go on it.

I thought some instruments in the shape of a lightning bolt would be fun.  Here’s another.  It was easy to frame them in Picmonkey.

Wedding Gift

I needed to make a gift for a wedding shower today.  I decided to paint something personal to commemorate the day.  Shanna is the daughter of some good friends,

Here is just the line drawing before I painted it.  I like doing this part  the best because I can do it in front of the TV!Shanna Mark2015

I framed it in a 11×14 black frame with a white mat.  (Sorry, forgot to take a picture.)  It came out quite nice and the bride to be was very pleased.

Lazy Kitty

Here is another little painting I did recently.  Finally, the sun is shining.  It’s a good day (for this feline at least) to bask in it’s glow.  Oh that life were this simple!

It's a good day to lie around in the warmth of the sun.
