Monday!


Birch Cottage available on eBay
I used iridescent paint for the highlights on the ocean but the scan made them all disappear :( They look dark instead of pale blue. Another lesson learned. Creating is all about making mistakes and having them turn into happy accidents or learning experiences.
Have a great week:)

I followed some rabbit trail to get to your blog and I'm so glad I did! I love the bright colors of your paintings and your photos are just fantastic! I must say I am coveting your daughter's gorgeous hair ; ). All the best~~

Hi Shelagh!

The Alice print came today -- thank you! My daughter is going to love it. She had the 2 different "cats on the couch" prints framed beautifully and they look so nice hanging up together in her living room. She gets a lot of compliments on them when her friends see them.

Did you ever watch the TV painter/instructor Bob Ross years ago? (sadly he's deceased) He use to say "happy accidents" all the time.

Cheers, Pat
