I'm taking a special trip soon to visit my very best friend! We are celebrating a milestone in her life of 65 years and who better to celebrate it with than family and your very best friend. We've been friends for 38 years so that makes us family!
To surprise her I've been working on these little paintings.
|To Live Simply With Purpose & Gratitude|
Using the KISS (Keep It Simple Suzy) method and the Less Is More theory to paint the Live Simple design, and Yes, it is simple in design, I collaged scrap papers onto the canvas and textured the papers with random stamping and a dab or two of paint. The flowers are freehand and highlighted with Twinkling H20's to give them depth and sparkle. I love the simplicity of this canvas painting. I think my friend will like it too.
There's a new grandson in her life too! So we are celebrating that too! I've known Brody's father since he was 4 years old and I wanted to make something special for his new baby. The inspiration for this little painting for the baby's nursery came when I saw what Ashley was doing over at Lil Blue Boo.
You can see the multi-talented Ashley Hackshaw's adorable creations over at http://www.lilblueboo.com/baby! I'm also working on a quilt for baby Brody but it isn't quite done yet, I'll post pictures of it next time.
