Angel & Beauty: December 19, 2007

My unfinished "Games" painting will have to wait to be completed because I have two VIPs (very important paintings) to do first.
"Angel" and "Beauty" were started on stretched canvas with neutral-toned gesso followed by sketches.

Fun Painting: December 9-10, 2007

I did a couple of fun things. I repainted a birdhouse. I bought this for a Christmas present but the paint job was a bit beat up and rough.






I also made this Christmas tree from Keri Smith's blogsite. I painted the ornaments, cut them out and decorated the tree. This would be fun for kids young and old.
