Horntoad~ Watercolor Painting

horntoad

I painted this card for my Dad for Father’s Day. We love Horny toads, they’re so cute! One of the things I love about them, is their fat bellies and stubby tails. :)

A Woman Who Serves the Lord…~Watercolor Painting

Standard

A woman who fears the Lord

I made this card for my little sis’s birthday. It was inspired by the verse, Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Pro 31:30.¬†

I enjoyed making this card for her. I would like to do a larger version that is more detailed sometime. :)

Chipmunk in Blackberry Bush~ Watercolor Painting

Available as a Fine Art Print

I’m now finished with my painting! Soon I’ll need to frame it and get it ready for the Art Show next month. Hopefully I can get my deer painting finished in time as well. My new Sable brush, that I mentioned earlier, did a good job, although…it wasn’t the same size that I had before. I think perhaps I’ll order another in a smaller size some time. But other than that, it’s what finished my painting and I think it turned out well. :)

Finally Recieved My Sable Brush!

Standard

Waited almost a month for my Kolinsky Sable Brush to arrive. I just got it yesterday. I love these watercolor brushes! Now I can finish my Chipmunk painting! :D

I haven’t used it yet but it should be a good one! I’ll let you all know how well it works later. ;)

I’m not quite finished with his fur yet. I’m hoping to put some foliage around him.

I’m still waiting for my special Sable Brush that I ordered last month, but now it says that it may not arrive until next month. Bummer! So my chipmunk painting that I had been working on, may be stalled for a while longer. :(

Here is one of my latest projects. I’ve been having a blast making crocheted purses! This one I gave to my sister. I put a blue ribbon around the flap and a cute, wooden button (which my sister picked out). :) Hoping to make some to sell some day. :D

Chipmunk in Blackberry Bush~ Watercolor Painting in Progress #2

chipmunk in progression 001 blog chipmunk in progression 002 blogHere is an update on my latest painting. I got the berries mostly done, they may need a touch up here and there, and I started working on the chipmunk. I’ll need to work on the leaves, and satisfy myself on the final details and then it will all be done! :) Unless I can make due with the brushes I already have, finishing it may be slow. My favorite sable brush through the years has been loved too hard, and is now out of shape, and the poor thing isn’t working right for me anymore. So last month I ordered a new one off of amazon.com. The bad thing is that it’s being shipped from Europe, so it’s not expected to get here until the 20th. :( Mean while, I’ll see what I can do with what I’ve got or work on another project while I’m waiting. :)
