Sadie and Holly were drawing ladybirds earlier and told me I should paint a picture of Horseshoe. Thinking I did a super job I showed the end result to my daughters who nearly choked laughing at it. They were barely able to get the words "you forgot his legs" out they were so convulsed. Sadie told Holly, "Oh, I think he's on a skateboard" and they laughed some more. I suggested to Holly that she might rename her pet Legless and she told me no because the real Horseshoe has legs. Maybe it will entertain you too! If you can tear yourself away from Horseshoe skateboarding here's a little paintings update:
First up is a finished piece and another in progress. The one of the horses is nearly finished.
Next are three finished pieces: The middle one was one I did for Easter as an egg hunt painting. I
love it. I'm fascinated lately by the movement of people so I'm working from some photos of my children. The foxgloves one is fine, I'm just not mad about it but I'm really happy with how the hare turned out and I'll be adding that to my collection of cards.
Another to enter the cards collection is this finished painting of a robin:
The painting of mother and child was a gift I made. I worked off a photo taken in hospital and then incorporated the pathway and flowers from another photo the mother in the photo had shared online. My pathway and flowers are vague while in her photo there are daffodils in full bloom and bursting with colour but I only wanted to suggest it in the background. My daughters at the beach last year (now that was a summer!) checking their nets is also finished.
