Rain/Snow/Rain and more snow

So it's been indoor weather long enough now.  On my last walk I saw a few things trying to bloom.  After finishing my closet door flower doodles I continued the idea on to some canvas.  I've got one more primed and just waiting for that touch of color.  I've been experimenting with layers of paint on the canvas a little different then I've done before and I really like the outcome.  It's a layer of splashes of color with a white wash over the entire canvas then lifting paint with a sheet of wax paper.  Wish I could figure how to do a whole wall like this.  Here's a pic of the canvas before the flowers were added. Fun project, this is the only time of year I get to play, soon the art fair season will get started and no time.  Go do something creative. Hug Cyndee

It's March Already

I finally got some motivation.  One day looking at the coat closet at the end of the hall by the living room, I decided it looked like a blank canvas and need some color.  So I started with a white primer coat, then some random dabs of colors.  Then it was time for some doodling.  Not my usual but something I'd seen on Pinterest . With my comfortable pen in hand I started, what fun.  I spent 4 days working on the doors then felt it need to be let loose, and continued onto the wall.   When I thought I was done, it just didn't feel right.  So I looked at it for a couple of days, up close and from across the room and decided it was the wall doodles that was just to much so I painted over it.  Now it feels right and I can call it finished.     It was a fun project, very intuitive.  And helped past the windy days that were not pleasant for walking outside.   Spring is coming, I see the some daffodils, crocus and hyacinths popping up.   Stay warm.   Thanks
