Deanna in the garden

i don’t really paint people i personally know

i am usually inspired by photography and fashion pictures from magazines

but, when my friend Deanna posted a self portrait of herself on facebook, my first thought was “wow” and my second thought was “painting”

the image stayed with me for a while and i just couldn’t wait to get it on canvas

wednesday was the day

i’m really happy with this piece

i didn’t give it too much thought. i just kind of went for it

i’m also super happy that this is my third painting this year and we are in the third month

if i do a painting a month, that will be great!

what do you think? creative criticism always welcome

Mug shots

This past week was filled with mornings and afternoons at the park as well as fun down time at home.

I continued with my FB Good morning Miami mug shot series and that makes me happy.

I haven’t touched any brushes, paints or canvases yet but at least I’m no longer freaking out about it like I was last week.

It was a good week.

Today we will be running errands and tomorrow we will be celebrating K’s birthday as well as having a very late Christmas with our Miami family.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
