Final in floral Set

TA-DA!!! I am so excited. I am finally starting to see more than what is on the canvas. What an awesome feeling. This is the third in the three paintings that will be a wall grouping when they are dry and I can get them framed. this one is special as I finally saw ruffles and went slower to make sure I got it right today. I am very proud of how it turned out. I almost went back to the other two and was going to do more to them, but decided not to. It is important for me to see the stages in my growth. Since tomorrow is my last day of vacation, I think i am going to paint a landscape picture. Then it is back to the day to day normalcy. LOLOL

Second Fantasy Flower

Here is my second flower painging. This is smaller than the other one and will be part of a grouping. I have one more to make. Perhaps by the end of that one I will have this down better. All I know is I am enjoying painting.

Floral Fantasy

I did it...I really did it. Here is my first floral oil painting. I have a lot of practicing to do, but I am very pleased how this came out for my first try. It helped that I had a wonderfully patient teacher too. LOLOL Looking forward to creating more floral pieces

Mica Shift Pendants

Thank you Cindy Lietz for finally showing me a way to do this wonderful technique that works! I have struggled with mica shift for a long time. Normally due to slicing too deep etc. With the help of Cindy Lietz and her mica shift tutorial, I finally have a love for this technique.

Today I made three pendants from one piece of clay and I now want to do these in multiple colors and patterns. Whoo Whooo.

Ok, now off to paint a magnolia branch. :-)

Winter Snowfall

Ok, so I am not real original in my title, but here is my second painting. did this one today and am fairly proud of this one. It was fairly easy and quick. I am anxious to tackle my next painting in a week or two. Want to paint a waterfall scene. Hopefully using a waterfall that Johnny and I went too a couple weeks ago. It was awesome. I am truly enjoying painting.

First Oil Masterpiece

Ok, so I know this is not clay work, but I am so excited. Painted my first oil painting today and I am so jazzed about how it turned out. Took me five hours to do, but it was worth it. Never painted in oils before, much less from scratch. This is actually the Bob Ross wet on wet method and I love it. I have wanted to try this for quite a few years and just never got the courage to give it a try. Needless to say I will be painting a lot more.

My next try is to do a painting with a waterfall.
