A little jewel of a painting and a view out of the door.
I rarely do this…you know…because the “Hey, look what I did!” approach feels like so much boasting, so please forgive this little bit of boasting in this post.
A month or so ago I started a new little painting and I showed the under painting on my FB page. And then I put it aside till today. (I do that)
Today I think I finished this little jewel in sapphire. I’m really pleased with it, but the main thing is it felt so good to paint for a couple of hours.
Why don’t I do that every day?
Also, my friend Celi of the kitchen’s garden asked what we see out of our door…the daily view. This is what I see Celi.
I’m really enjoying seeing the fellowship’s daily view on Celi’s blog. It’s one of my daily reads. 🙂
I vote for you painting every day!
Me too Michelle! Me too. 🙂
Thank you so much Amanda. 🙂
The painting is a jewel and perhaps you don’t paint every day because such jewels and the accompanying feeling are not everyday occurences – but come to you and sparkle and they choose 🙂 Who knows? Delighted that you shared 🙂
Aw thank you so much Pearl. 🙂 That’s a good thing to hold in the back of my head when I re-evaluate the burn pile. 🙂
What a lovely view outside your door. And your painting is indeed a sapphire jewel. Has it inspired you to do even more painting? I hope so.
Hi Veronica! I see you paint with flowers just like Monet 🙂 Love those irises!! So did he come to think of it…really enjoyed seeing the process of your little painting. It turned out really lovely. And kind of a surprise ending, looked like it was going to be a path and turned into a stream:-) When I paint or draw I have the same thought, why don’t I so this more often? Answer, time–though also it’s a storage problem. Already have walls full of my husband’s photos and my art–and there’s not really a market for my art, so…
Sara, I so want to see your art! I know about the storage problem. What we have to do is run the length of the country holding gallery owners for ransom in exchange for art shows! 🙂
