Paint Party Friday - Snow white and a creative sistahs entry! :0)

Hi guys, well I think I have survived the school holidays with my sanity in tact ;0) not much time for art over the last couple of weeks but I managed to work on an art project with the boys which I shall post when it's finished.

Today I finally got some art time in and with the little ones on a play date I managed to work on something new.

I got this piece of wooden board from my mum the other day and decided to give it a go. I was inspired by my sketch in my last post and just began doodling and painting, she took on a life of her own and became my version of Snow white :0) it's not finished yet as I'm not happy with her hand and I want to add more little details but I'm happy with how she's turning out.

I also worked on my entry in Jaime's book for the sistahood of the travelling sketchbook project that I'm involved with. If you are interested in finding out more about this project just click on the link on the right :0)

 My month was February, I used acrylic paint and patterned paper. I just need to work on the written page and I can send it on! :0)

What have you all been up to this week? :0)

Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches

Hi guys,

Well my blogging is becoming increasingly sporadic and I do apologise for that. Life seems to be getting in the way of my art which can be very frustrating sometimes but also can't be helped.

We had an interesting week which began with my littlest hurting himself on the trampoline and my husband and I spending our 12th wedding anniversary in the hospital emergency department. Luckily it was a nasty sprain not a break but the poor little guy has been hobbling around all week, and still isn't right.

I've been working on some lesson plans for next term as I shall be starting my artist in residence position, I'm so looking forward to that. The school holidays are about to start so I hope to put some of these plans into place and try them out on my own boys first so that I can see what works and what doesn't. I'm nervous but so excited about this new direction my art is taking me, i shall keep you posted on how it all goes.

In the meantime I managed to work on my large canvas which I showed you last post as well as a couple of  portraits of my beautiful nieces as well as a quick sketch I did in front of the tele this afternoon.

I hope you all had a great Easter and look forward to seeing what you've all been up to!!! :0)
