new originals

Happy late valentines day! I hope everyone had a great day, spent with someone special. Whether it be your siginificant other, friends, or even your mom. :) We had a nice evening. Just stayed around the house. We plan to go out sometime this weekend, when my parents are free to babysit. Hopefully by then the resteraunts will be a little less crowded. :)


Well, here is the original I posted pictures of in progress a few days ago. It is not listed in the store yet, probably not for a few more days. Since this canvas was 12x16 it was a TON more work then the smaller 9x12 I have been working with. Still somewhat new to working with watercolor paints, but I have to say I am really liking it! I am learning a few new techniques, and would sometime love to take a class. I also am wanting to work with acrylic sometime in the near future.


I also was super inspired last night and created another watercolor painting. I titled it "we make a happy family." I love love it to pieces. I debated on keeping it, but am MAKING myself say goodbye. After all, I get attached to every original.
I have two blank canvases left from my trip to Tri-Cities monday, and they are begging to be filled. I think I might need to hide them. That is, if I ever plan to get anymore done on that baby book. :) This painting is already listed in the store, but the print will be listed later today, and limited to 50 copies.
Well, I know I have something important I should be doing. Like maybe cleaning my house... especially since it is Friday. I have found it to be a very good habit to have my house clean by the weekend. Just in case we get unexpected company. Of course that doesnt happen very often, but still... it IS a good habit that I need to work on a little more! :)
Have a great weekend!
