Think I'm going to leave this alone for a while until the painting tells me the next way to go. Not totally happy with the sky or the moon rise, but it's getting there. Need to do a little more with the water in way of shadowing and work on the splash. I thought about putting in another dolphin; however, with the way the current one is situated, to add another would be too crowded. Perhaps one at a later date.
I do appreciate all the comments and input, it is very helpful.…Continue
I have worked a little more on the painting. Still have to work on the dolphin, the splash of water and adding the ripples. It still needs something, but can't quite put my finger on it. Oh well, it will come when its ready to.
My DH decided I needed to get the creative juices flowing so he brought in my easel from the garage and we went shopping for paints, new brushes and canvas.

It was a lot of fun and, surprisingly, we were able to do a complete painting in 2 hours time. Had a ball and it was nice to just kick back and relax doing something I thoroughly enjoy. It's been a long time since I've painted anything.
This is Josie with her completed painting.…Continue
Until I can get these ocular migraines under control and, hopefully, the visual disturbances that seem to go with them, I am only able to doodle and sketch rather than sew. Haven't sketched in a long while and the two posted below were faces that came out of dreams. Not sure what to make of it, if anything. Any how, they are what they are. Think I will look into seeing if there are any art classes around that deal in drawing people. I have been doing the doodles freehand with an ink brush…Continue
