Highlights from My 1st Art Show Video

So many of you have stopped by and seen my art show video. If you haven't click here.  Kelly's Art Show

Glad you all liked it. One person said she felt so relaxed watching it she is going to use it as a stress buster! LOL!

I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites from the video. First, the drawing of my mother-in-law turned out so great. This was from her wedding picture and she looked so beautiful. I can't wait to make a copy and take it to her.

Another picture from the video I really loved was my rainbow girl. I was inspired my another artist who did a girl with rainbow colored hair. After seeing that I just had to try it. Here are some detail about her.

I loved using book pages as apart of the background. Also, since the book was inspirational if adds strength to her.

I liked using some old rub-on words like dreams, friend, true. Also it was fun sprinkling white paint around.

I used a stencil to create the butterflies. The soft pastel colors were just perfect for Spring. Also, I just love how her hair and facial expressions turned out. She looks so content and peaceful.

Well, I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about this pictures.  I am drawing more and hope to have more to share with you all soon. Have a nice weekend!
