I have been inside painting all week due to rainy weather. It has been kind of nice having an excuse not to garden. I did splurge on two new pieces of decorative paper. It is amazing how a new piece of paper can get the juices flowing. I fell kind of into this one. I just let it decide how to finish itself. I painted her first. Gave her a new mod dress and some yellow stockings. This little lady looked at me like I was crazy when I tried to put a tree on the painting. She told me she lives in the the city with her cat. I had fun half illustrating this one and I like the finished look. Reminds me of one of my favorite books, "Harold and the Purple Crayon". I always wished I could draw my surroundings. I might have to do a couple more like this. I think I am going to fill my etsy shop with all of my newest paintings so I have something in there! So hopefully soon you will see my paintings by my etsy sign. :)
Hope you all are having a super week!
