Really?? December is here? I can barely believe it! Just remember how fast time is zipping by when you are freezing under a blanket of snow!! : ) It will be sunshine and flowers before you know it right?? Well until then let's play some more with Penny Black's "First Snow" release available in the on-line store HERE.
My card today was created using First Snow products with a slight twist. I have a niece and a great nephew who celebrate their birthdays on Christmas Eve so I pulled out my trusty Misti and made an easy modification : )
I have been a bit MIA again. I don't know how it happens but time just whooshes by even when I'm not ready! I had a wonderful visit with my family - although it was way too short!! We did, in fact, spend a great deal of time painting - also sightseeing, playing games, laughing hysterically and eating really really good Keto food!!. My sister, Susan, is a very talented painter and is a wonderful teacher to boot so I really learned a lot!! Susan subscribes monthly Louise De Masi's water color classes on Patreon. I had never heard of Patreon but I now subscribe too!! I will include a link to Louise's You Tube channel where she introduces a Hydrangea we painted and ultimately directs you to Patreon for anyone interested.
Here is my only finished painting from our visit but I'm in progress on another painting of a Rose that I hope turns out 1/2 as good as my sister's.
This is called a Fairy Wren : ) I won't point out the things I hate about my painting but overall I really enjoyed painting this bird especially with my sister and niece painting beside me!! : ) To give you some perspective on the size of the painting - the bird from it's long toe to top of his feathers is 9".
That is it for me : ) before I go here is a "boy version" of my COOL birthday card.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by! I hope your week is off to a wonderful start!!
