Ta Dah!

This painting is done! I am so thankful- I was running out of steam there at the end.

Plans for the holidays.... I want to do some monotypes in the print shop. I also have some smaller panels (tiny 16"x 24") that are ready to go. I am about to stretch and gesso a 4' x 4'. It is time to make some art!

Gettin' there

I am almost there with this painting. I have been slowly working on this since August. It is fitting that I will finish (fingers crossed) during exam week.

All I have left to do is the colored coconut. I am scared and excited at the same time. It is a lot of detail, however it brings back fond memories. We used to make cupcakes at Easter with colored coconut on top to simulate grass. Then we would add jellybeans on top to be the easter eggs.

I was pleasantly surprised how fun the shredded wheat (on the roof) was to paint. However, I never want to paint pretzels again. The salt was too much, even for me. I think the next one needs some glass and some color... I am craving it!
