All Aglow!

All Aglow
11" by 14" original oil on wrap around canvas with sides painted

   Don't you just love that time of day when nature is all aglow with the sun as it is setting?  I was inspired by this Irish cow and her peaceful stance.  It was so much fun recreating a special moment in time.  
   The kitchen is another story.  It is no longer "apricot"!  My son's first words were...oh, PINK!  I decided to head to the paint store the next day and decided on a really pretty color called Manchester Tan which is a Benjamin Moore color. It isn't finished yet but I am liking it much better!  This way anything I add to the decor will go really well and it has a very soft look.  When I went back to the store, I realized that they have giant paint chips!  Like two feet by two feet!  Sure wish I had discovered this a couple of weeks ago. :-)
   So far I have a couple of ideas for workshops.  One is Paint Your Pet or favorite animal and the other if Fun With Palette Knives!  I think both would be really fun to teach.  I am working on a supply list and planning them for June.  Please let me know if you would like more information or to be added to the contact list!  Hope you week is going along great!  I am working fast and furiously on the house projects before Andrew gets home.  I think he will help me with some things but kind of wanted to surprise him with some of the changes.  Thanks for checking in!
