Art for Me

Happy 4th of July! I hope you are licking those fingers from eating delicious BBQ and all the fixings. Today I am sharing some fun paintings I did on some old large paper I had. It was a nice change to create on such big paper.

Recently, I heard a song that inspired me to want to make a special painting for myself. After I made that one, I got so inspired I had to make more pictures of parts of my life.

Also, this was a new challenge too to paint the skin colors. I haven't done that very much and still learning how to do it. But I do love how the colors turned out.

Take a look and hope you have a fun holiday weekend!

Just love the butterflies and the magical dust they give. The hair was so fun, too!


Love the skin tones and the circles. They look like bubbles!

I found this flower online and had to add it.

Still working on this one. Not sure what to add to the background. Maybe nothing.
