Well I'm back after my holidays and I apologize for not updating sooner. I've been pretty busy getting ready for a Christmas Craft Sale that is going on in November in a small town near mine. Did I mention this is my first craft sale ever? Yes, it is and I'm so nervous. I'm trying to make lots of cards (that I'll be posting later on) for Christmas and every other occasion, picture frames, embellished candles and a lot more that I know how to do, but never get actually to do it!
On the other hand, I discovered a new hobbie and it has kept me busy for the last two nights!! (very late nights!) I was watching TV (I don't watch much tv) and as I was flipping through the channels, I stopped to watch the Ellen Degeneres Show on a channel I never watch for I thought it was kinda boring...WRONG!!! they have small classes of painting on canvases. Oh my!!! I LOVED what the instructor painted, I was so captivated by what you can do with a couple of brushes and some paint! that I decided to give it a try with my craft acrylic paints (he used oil). So off to my room I went after putting my little one down for a nap and here it is my very first painting eveeeerrr!
Sooo what do you think? It's supposed to be a lake view on a wintery day thus the "snow" on the trees and on the "land." I'm really pleased with the results...to be my very first time trying to paint and actual landscape on a canvas. I didn't know I could pull it off, apparently I can and THAT makes me very happy.
Later on, I'll be posting my second attempt at painting, but this time I actually went to Wal*Mart and bought some oil paint. I hope you like it and why not, you could give it a try too!
PS. The canvases I got at my local dollar store :)
Talk to you later!
