To keep my creative juices flowing the past… gosh… nearly seventeen months, I have done mostly sewing projects with some preschool crafts thrown in there at times. But, back in February a friend asked me to do a painting for her for a Father’s Day gift.
This was the perfect project to get back into the swing of painting. I had plenty of time, which was helpful since I’d only have twenty minutes here or an hour there to work on it. It ended up taking a couple of months from start to finish.
I got it done and delivered probably six weeks ago and I had forgotten about blogging about it. That is, until I pulled out my paints and brushes to start working on a couple of other little projects- another commission and a few personal paintings.
My kids are finally getting a little more independent, which will hopefully mean that I’ll be able to do some more painting! Of course, I also have to clean, cook, run errands, do homework, and just remain sane, so I’m not anticipating being able to paint as consistently as I used to. I sure do love it, though, when I get the chance. 🙂
