Man, my life. I just can't seem to slow down, but at least I'm productive.
Yesterday B and I hosted a baby shower for a friends daughter-in-law and the anxiously awaiting due date of Owen, my friends first grandchild. I created the invites with watercolor and was happy with how they turned out.
It was really quite easy with everyone bringing most of the food. I did these very easy caprese bites and ordered yummy cupcakes. Others brought fruit, banana bread, quiche, juice and I had prosecco. It was a great success.
There was another little girl there that kept Snicklefritz entertained and Snicklefritz was a great help getting everyone to sign in, where to put there coats and gifts. She was invaluable and I knew she would be. Of course Clayton was very happy with all the people and many hands to lend a scratch, especially the little girls. He LOVES little kiddos and was absolutely exhausted after it was all done.
I did get a bit of painting done this week and I'm feeling very, VERY good about all of it.
This beautiful orchid was where I get my pedicure and thought the shadows were awesome.
I changed up the bowl to soft Blue as blue plays off of yellow nicely.
Now I need to let it dry a bit and work on the background before going back to the flowers.
Then I started this lovely. The Photo belongs to my friend Shirley, of whom the single peony I did the other day. I saw this on her phone as she was showing me the peony and told her I HAD to have it to attempt to paint.
So, this week, I started it. I am having so much fun with it and you know I can leave out as much as I want or leave in all of it. There is so much to the photo that I have a lot of options.
