Today I was able to take some time and paint, with acrylics from my grandson, Easter cards. It was relaxing and fun. I did six and then stamped my name on the back, wrote inside and addressed the envelopes. I was done in time to walk them out to my country mail box at the end of my gravel driveway.
With all the fun it was, I had to laugh as I cleaned up, because in the studio sink, as I washed the brushes and pallet, I could see a lovely rainbow. Yes, in my sink. Now I know I am creative and enjoy things like pictures in the clouds, but just laughed at my pretty sink rainbow. I will always look for them again as I clean up after painting.
Do any of you enjoy painting as I do? I mainly do oils and have been working on birds. I have usually done flowers, especially sunflowers, some of my favorite. I have a nice collection of paintings in our one bathroom. Birds are a bit harder for me, but each one I do I see improvement. An artist friend in Wisconsin has encouraged me to keep working on them. So my next bird project is from a photo I took of my son's red-tail hawk. He is one of the about 90 licensed falconers in the state of Missouri. It will be a nice project and also make a good gift to him.
If you paint, draw, quilt, knit, crochet, etc., I want to encourage you to keep at it and enjoy creating your own patterns and ideas. Design things for yourself. You can do it. And the more you do, the improvement will be seen by you and make you proud. Have fun with it, and also....look for that rainbow in your sink.
