Well, his visit to Hawaii is over as of today. I sent him off with a smile and lots of goodies for the kids in the classroom. I guess it's the art teacher in me, but when someone gives me a little "project" like that, I can't help but go all out. I just LOVE to make things cute, colorful, and creative!
All I had to do was send a picture, but I decided to send a little "scrapbook" with about 6 pictures. It wasn't as much trouble as it sounds, and I enjoyed every second of it. I used materials I already had at the house like cardstock, stickers, and twine. It was super simple, but I thought it was kind of cute when I finished. Think the kids will like it?
Last night, after cleaning my house for what felt like forever, I finally got started on a pastel painting based on some Hawaii scenery that I've photographed during my time here.
Here's a peek at the photo inspiration for my current piece.
I hope to finish this one in the next day or so and start on a new pet portrait. I'll probably have this one in my shop when I finish, so be sure to check it out. Have a great day!
