More Paintings from October

Happy Friday! I hope your week has been productive. Hold on because the holidays are right around the corner.

I did have fun drawing and painting. Here are some of the recent paintings from this month.

I love the hot pink with the flowers. I also love her friendly face and hair.
The bold background is just fun with her colorful style.
I used vintage printed paper in the background and added paint and colored pastels. Plus she turned out so stunning with her blond hair and sharp features.

 Thanks for looking and have a relaxing weekend!

Live Forward

Happy October to all! I am getting ready for the holidays already and hope to have some Christmas cards to share soon.

While I am in card mode and am still enjoying creating faces and painting. Here is one of the last ones I did called, "Live Forward." Just a reminded to keeping looking ahead in life. Driving like life is supposed to be done by looking through the windshield not the rear view window. (Oh, that is a good one. LOL!)

Also, I loved using strips of patterned paper in the background. Then painted over them with layers of colors and then added stamps and that face. Isn't she pretty? I am so proud I am learning to draw profiles. They have been hard to do but I am starting to get it.

Take a look!

Thanks for looking and hope you have a terrific day!
