I'm painting again!!!!!!!!!!

Over 2 years ago, I started a painting....I put down base color, and then started a background. I wanted to paint a vase sitting on a table; something I thought my dad might like, and then I hit a wall! I just couldn't stand the thought of working on that canvas, so I put it with the blank canvases I'd bought and forgot about it.

Then I got pregnant....and all of that was put on a back burner.

Last night, I picked up the canvas. Something was different about it after all this time. I turned it, looked at it, and I saw something amazing! After a few paint strokes here and there, it transformed into something totally different! I worked on it for about 15 minutes, and then another thought popped into my head. I ran upstairs, grabbed my basket of paints, a few brushes and another canvas, and went back downstairs.

I'm painting again!!!! As Camilla sat in her swing, contently watching "Aladdin", I worked on 2 paintings. I felt so much relief and harmony passing through my body...I can't wait to get home and work on them some more!

Right on, both my mom and grandma are very arts and craftsy too. So i know what it's like growing up in a house like that.
