My latest project
I wanted to give you all a little sneak peek of my latest art project.
My heart has really been longing to get back to my love of painting lately and last month during my blog tea party I was soooo in love with this tea cup photograph from the etsy shop, couragemylove.etsy.com and I just couldn't get it out of my mind!
And one day it just came to me that I should design a painting around the photo, and this is what I have so far.
I haven't decide whether to add fabric to the piece or not, but I have added a piece of vintage paper below the stack of tea cups.
Of course, I am only in the beginning stages of my work but
the wonderful thing about starting this art piece is that when I picked up my paintbrush and started squeezing paint out on my palette from the paint tubes, such a wonderful feeling of joy flushed through my heart and soul.
You see, I am really a painter, and as much as I love my crafting, my heart really belongs to the medium of paint.
There's just something so amazing in that feeling of holding a paintbrush in my hand and applying the paint to the canvas, that is so part of my being.
I have let that go lately and I have really been missing it, but no longer!
Of course, I will not leave my collaging and crafting behind but I will definitely not be putting my painting creations on the back burner any longer.
Now, if any of you have any ideas on how I could create more hours to the day please let me
talk to you soon,
