Week 4 Giveaway!!!

Hi friends! I have lots to catch you up on. First up is our final giveaway! My daughter, Samantha (from Like An Introvert) and I are having our final giveaway to celebrate our new line that we are collaborating on called Seeds of Hope. You can see the whole line in my store. My daughter is a writer and I am a painter, and we are bringing the two together to create instruments of encouragement and hope.

This week we will have two prizes: an 8 x 10 original painting and 5 inspiration cards from the Seeds of Hope line.

I also have a few paintings that I've not shared here on my blog yet.

 These first two pictures are from a yearlong workshop I am taking over at my friend Maisy's community, One Little House. The class is called Paint What You See and it is a great little pick-me-up for my mojo each month. The owl painting is my own version of Maisy's owl. I wanted to try to make it colorful, but it certainly didn't turn out the way I had hoped. The girl painting is one that I absolutely love.



These next two girls are recent paintings that I love as well. I seem to be in a pattern with the hair right now. I love doing it this way and am enjoying exploring it.



 The next several paintings are things I have worked on over the last couple of months... hope you enjoy!

Art Sentiments

I recently took a class over at Mystele's Community Thrive called Art Sentiments. I had an absolute blast making them. The workshop is only $10 and you get quite a bit of good instruction. Here's the first one with lots of pics and closeups.





And here is the second one:
