Hey, hey! Happy Monday, guys. How was your weekend, huh?

Ours was go go go, and some sweet fiends of ours taught us how to make Indian curry (oh my gosh, delicious) we FINALLY finished and put up our floating shelves (biggest achievement for us in the world), and we watched the Superbowl at a friend's house with the most amazing backyard in this world. Lights were all over the rocks, there was a giant outdoor movie screen over the pool, fire pits were everywhere, and there was so much food. The kind you probably shouldn't eat every single day...wings, mini corn dogs, homemade cookies, white queso, guacamole...everything. It was so much fun, and I can tell you for a fact that I'm not a huge sports fan for the most part. But if we ever watch sports at a home like that, I'm all in!!

Here's the floral painting I was trying to sort out last week. I ended up keeping with major simplicity and pops of thick paint. I kinda want to horde it to myself...

Alas, it needs to go to the fundraiser...and hopefully it will find a good home. :) It's sort of hard to see, but everything is surrounded by peachy hints of color. Those subtle parts of the painting bring it all together nicely, in my opinion.

What I love most about it are the textures. Here's a little behind-the-scenes action for you (stool and all).

Of course I gobbed too much paint when I was mixing, so I made little individual pieces like this:

This is actually watered-down acrylic on paper. I love the effect it creates on the paper.

I want to submit one more painting to the fundraiser, and I was thinking about the back view of a girl (torso and up), who is just standing in a relaxed position. Maybe with her hands on her hips or just dropped to the sides along her torso? I have a few ideas sketched up, and I love the idea of chocolate skin, black hair, and a coral tank top...maybe with either a sea foam green background or a peachy background.

We'll see how this second idea pans out once it's down on paper.

Lovely painting. Good luck on the fundraiser. Looking forward to the second painting.
