This was one that I started out thinking, “Is this color right? Does this go with that? Am I screwing it up right from the get-go?” But then I liked it at the end. 18″x24″ oil on stretched canvas. Available here.
I love the in-motion swoop to his ears, you just know he’s on his way to do something important. 10″x10″ oil on stretched canvas. Available here. SOLD, thank you.
I painted a few little pieces by brush this week. I haven’t used a brush in a while, but it came back pretty easily. Well, this style did, anyway. My daughter said, “You’re going backwards,” because I used to paint this style all the time a few years ago. I guess I like it becauseContinue reading “painting: polish bun (06/25/2018)”
I’ve been painting the last couple weeks, so I have several new ones available this week. Yes, doling them out one a day to help etsy’s algorithm keep me at the top of the searches. 16″x20″ oil on stretched canvas. Available here. SOLD, thank you.
I am trying to fit in a little knitting every day as my zen time. I don’t have anything I particularly need to knit, I have enough scarves (can one ever have too many scarves?) so I am knitting simple washcloths. Quick, easy, and something you always need. This is Peaches & Cream cotton. ItContinue reading “mspt: knitted wash cloths”
I just love this pattern, it is, for me, the perfect lunch bag. I think we got almost a year’s worth of use out of the last ones. And that’s five-day-week use, so I’m happy with how they held up. I followed my “use your favorite fabric” philosophy. I used to save my favorites, butContinue reading “sewing: lunch bags”
For those who haven’t been reading forever, “mspt” is “make something pretty today.” I used a wreath frame from the floral section in the dollar store, and ribbon and fresh lavender. You have to gather the lavender on just the right day–too soon, and it’s not fragrant, too late and it’s gone to seed. IContinue reading “mspt: lavender wreath”
I have listed my fox quilt pattern on etsy again. I just sort of let it slide to the way-side, but it should be up running constantly, because it’s a good pattern and fits a niche in a way I haven’t seen anyone else do. Please follow the link above and pin to pinterest fromContinue reading “fox face quilt square pattern”
Happy Flag Day! Did you get yours hung out yet? I had to run to the store yesterday and buy a new one, because ours was starting to look shabby. Then I put the old one aside, because I know it’s supposed to be disposed of properly, and there probably aren’t boy scouts doing thatContinue reading “painting: sorrel horse (06/14/18)”
I hope your Saturday is going as beautifully as it is here. Sunny skies, a bit windy, but not too cold and not too hot. The perfect sort of day. 8″x10″ oil on stretched canvas. I love painting bay horses, because so many colors can go into their russet and not look amiss. Available inContinue reading “painting: bay horse (06/10/2018)”
