Last week I posted a picture of a WIP which was to be a baby present. Something in that painting wasn't working for me - so instead of analyzing what it was - I ruined it. The only thing left to do was gesso over the canvas and rethink the project. I was wandering around Pinterest when it suddenly came to me - the background was just wrong. So I chose another canvas (decided to go a little bigger) and went to work. I'm not quite finished but I am pleased with it. I think it will be a good painting for a baby girl's room. I also worked on a couple of new little ladies and a journal page lady - which I can't find right now. In the midst of that I had time to develop a horrible MRSA infection on my face. I was scary looking - my lips and one side of my face was swollen. I am on antibiotics and I almost look normal - but it was rough. And my husband started making jokes (to make me feel better and I did laugh) like saying "don't give me no lip". Gotta laugh in the midst of craziness. Anyway, without further ado, my new giraffe
I am linking with Paint Party Friday (here) hosted by Eva and Kristen who give us a wonderful venue to share art with you and each other. Go take a look and enjoy. Maybe next time you can submit your work.
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed and art-filled weekend.
