This week's To Do List. I kind of revisited an older GO TO lettering style (there's a quick tutorial on it here) and added different flourishes to each day.

Summer - The Process

Here are my WIP pics of this painting...

 It all starts with a sketch
 The drawing with chalk on a black gessoed wood cradleboard
 First coat of paint on the background
 First coat on the face
 This is always the step where I doubt the painting is going to "work". I call this the "Ugly Phase".
 You can see that the face has one coat except for that right eye--the second coat makes a huge difference. 
 Almost done. She just needs a few accents and the chalk to be wiped off.
Almost done. I will add a few more accents after this.
And the finished painting!

Still playing with the brush pens. I have a love/hate relationship with cursive. Anyone else? I'd love to get better at it but I find myself always going back to print.

Newest Painting - Summer

I've been in a bit of a painting slump lately. But just recently I've felt the creative energy flowing again. This painting was hard to put in the mail. That's how I know I really like it! I wanted her to hang around my house a bit longer. But she is a gift for my niece so she had to get on her way.
This was my inspiration pic. This little cutie just turned 2 and she's the youngest of 4 but she is IN CHARGE so in the painting I gave her a crown. She's also the sweetest little angel pie you'll ever meet so I gave her wings.
Here she is with her painting. This picture makes my heart so, so happy!
