Saturdays are pretty busy around my house. It is the day we try to squeeze chores, errands, and family time, but I was able to get all of that done yesterday (except the family time). My youngest child's birthday is today so I have some fun family time planned for later this evening so I was able to get into the studio early...Yay, no late night tonight!
Although my chores are complete, I still have birthday fun to prepare; therefore today's painting was sweet and simple. Inspired by one of my fun DIY décor projects I thought I would paint one of my embroidery hoop wreaths similar to what is shown below.
I didn't paint these particular wreaths, but this gives you an idea of my inspiration.
When I say this painting was simple I am also referring to quick. Would you believe that I painted this entire painting while talking to my oldest daughter on the phone? She was folding her laundry while I was painting, and we just talked about a bunch of nothing...the best conversations ever, right?!
I didn't focus as much on details for example the leaves of the eucalyptus. They are just a simple stroke made with the point of a small palette knife. To my detailed mind it looks rather messy, but that smudged, imperfect look is growing on me... reminds me of a chippy distressed piece of furniture that is bursting with character.
I hope you guys enjoy your weekend with your family!
