Owl Christmas Present

Standard

P1030408Hopefully everyone had a wonderful day yesterday:)  Here is a hubcap I painted for my best friend for Christmas.  Her and her family absolutely love owls, so when I decided on the picture to paint, it was perfect.  I think this is one of my best hubcaps so far.  It’s not bright or cheerful, but subtle and beautiful.  I could be slightly bias after spending so much time on it though!

In the coming year, I really aim to be better about continuing my creative endeavors on a daily basis and being better about regularly updating my blog.  Hopefully I can hold myself to the goal.  Hope you all enjoy the owl and have a Happy New Year!

Mason Jar Painting

Standard

Still using the mason jars from my cousin’s wedding, I decided to paint this one with chickens.  I think it has a bit of a kitchen-y feel to it now:)  They did not quite come out as well as I was hoping, but I still think they look pretty cute.

While I should be painting hubcaps for Christmas presents (I have a to-do list of paintings!), these chickens just spoke to me.  It only took me a day and it was fun to paint something other than a hubcap.  On other creative news notes, I finally bought myself a new sketchbook.  There are now 50 blank pages of potential!  As for my next project, I’m not sure what is on the agenda.  There are a lot of possibilities, so we will see.

Hope you have a terrific Tuesday:)
