I've had some time at home over the break. It has been so nice! I've been a little spoiled and now I don't want to go anywhere! I took some time and painted a couple of things that weren't orders. They're just things I wanted to paint.
I have ideas bouncing around in my head all of the time. I rarely sit down and actually put them on canvas. I wanted something small to put on my mantle. Our TV hands over it so I can have anything tall blocking it. I picked out all of my favorite winter colors and patterns and put them all together in four blocks. They will spell out SNOW when finished!
I love oval and round canvases. They're just a change from the normal rectangle and square. I wanted to do a plain and simple snowman...no face, buttons, or carrot noses. I also wanted to do it in all shades of white and gray. The little dash of color will be in the scarf and wording.
I think I'm going to take them out and scuff them up a bit for a rustic look before I add those last little details.
I've got a few more things to try before heading back to school on Monday!
