Guys, I’m painting. And it’s only going to get better! Look below! Just look at that huge canvas I’ve been commissioned to paint (behind the darling baby who was held up for a size comparison and of course, steals the show with her cuteness)! It’s huge, beautiful, and oh so white. It’s just begging to be covered in lush oil paint. …so now you know what I’ll be doing this weekend!
I can’t wait to show it to you on early next week (hopefully)!
The painting in the slideshow is tiny. it’s 4×4 inches (which I love) and took me far, far to long to paint. I mean, really, Emily… it’s 8 inches. I just kept repainting and repainting so much! Crazy.
But, in the end, I actually love the super thick, impasto paint, and all the texture that evolved after all those layers of paint! The colors were exciting to me. I love the teal and pink and dark shades and how they all play off each other. I’ll post the “photo-shoot” of this baby soon!
I like the baby. I also like the painting. Your mini paintings are great ideas.
Haha! Thanks! I rather like the baby too! She gives the best smiles. ; )
I like the baby, and the painting too! Perfect size for paintings FOR babies! haha (and cuteness)
What an enormous canvas to be painting on! Looking forward to seeing the end result! 🙂
Wouldn’t that be super cute the just paint her, in this pose and all, on the canvas! Ahh! Talk about a nursery art!
beautiful painting! even more beautiful baby! 🙂 it’s things like this that make me wish I could paint… 😀
Looks like your going to be VERY busy!! What are you painting! I can’t wait to see the finished product!! However, sweet baby Madelyn steals the show with the canvas!!
i just stumbled upon your blog and i am so impressed! i love paper, writing hand notes and being creative…i am a photographer who still shoots with film and have started a blog about my father, who actually was an artist, an oil painter. one bit of wisdom he imparted to me was, “Always paint, like you are rich!”. i think that is why i loved the little 4″x4″ oils you created because they have so much texture in addition to the subject matter and colors
. therefore,its only natural to paint on a larger scale. all the best on your new project!happy days!!
oh yes…super gorgeous baby!!!another beautiful creation!!!
