Happy Flower!

Good Morning!

What's good about today? Well, lots of things, but mostly I'm just happy it's not hot today. I have plans to paint my upstairs hallway today. Pray I don't fall down the stairs! 

A couple of things today. First, here's the last painting I made. I decided to try acrylic paints and followed a demo on youtube. It turned out okay, don't you think? I'm really enjoying the process and hope I will become really good. I love the oils, and I also like acrylics for different reasons. If you're a painter, you'll understand. 

Here's my last painting. It's on a smaller canvas, and I think I may do another one on a bigger canvas. This one was fun to do up. 


It has a whispy feel that I like! 


I also wanted to mention that I updated my Etsy Shop today. All my Fall and Winter images are available for purchase. There are pumpkins, some rubber boots, a wonky house and a silhouette of a group of wonky houses, snowmen and winter birds on a branch. Have a peek! 

I haven't made up any digital images in quite some time because this year has been an incredibly busy and somewhat trying year for me. Doing up digital images can be quite time consuming and a bit frustrating at times. I haven't been up to it. 

Well, that's it for today! I hope you have a wonderful day!


Blessings,
Carmen
