For Mom...(Via Made By Girl)

Heading to NYC tomorrow - it's quite exciting! I'll get to see some friends I haven't seen in so long & meet new ones at BlogFest. Very cool.... 

The best part is I'll get to see my family again!  I didn't give my mom a gift on Mother's day because I thought a painting would be a lot more special. So, I sent this piece to her today & hopefully by the time I'm there it'll be hung in her place!

She told me she wanted something with some green....so this is what I came up with. Can't wait for her to get it!

  2. Hey Jenn I paint as well and often use gold in my paintings, do you mind sharing what brand of gold you use it looks great. I've bought a few but they are too dull so I just use spray paint which is much more difficult to manipulate. Thanks!

  18. I love the colours in this painting. It's like sunkissed water, please tell me, do you have an inspiration for each piece of art or do you just put brush to canvas and see what happens?

    I adore painting, it's so theraputic. For a while I've had my paints where I can easily get to and canvases waiting to be dressed but for some reason I just can't begin.

    Haven't painted for years, so out of touch. I'd love to do something for my lounge. Do you have any tips on completing an original piece?

  19. SAFFRON, you really have to be in the mood to paint. I have days that I don't want to paint at all...and other days where i look forward to it.
    However, I suggest just starting something and practicing..sometimes the first one will be the worst - so keep trying until you get something you like. You can just paint over the first painting if you don't like it...but i wouldn't paint over a piece more than 3 times. :)
