I came across Jennifer's In The Meantime blog last year, through a mutual blogging friend. The photos on her blog are inspiring, and I always enjoy her musings. We seem to have a lot of similarities.
Here are the rules of this award: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find, and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight or more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
Well, I only follow a few blogs due to my dial up computer life so I won't give away eight awards. Aside from Jennifer's blog, here are a few blogs that belong to talented women who inspire me:
And now for something completely different...Here are the poppy paintings I was working on yesterday. Both were done in acrylic, and both were based on the same sketch. The first is a 5 x 7 inch painting on paper primed for acrylic paintings. The second is much larger...I used a 16 x 20 inch canvas. I also used another medium for some added texture.Here's a close up. Can you guess what I used?I should have taken a photo of the two paintings together to show the large size difference. I'm quite happy with both paintings. I do of course want to get better, so if you have any feedback, let me know.
