Today was warm and sunny so when I woke up I decided I wanted to try to paint outside at the top of my steps. I’m hoping to be able to do some Plein Air paintings during vacation this year too, so I figured I might as well try it in a more controlled environment
Earlier this year I made a list of goals – I’ve done quite a few so far and yesterday, we gave ourselves an early anniversary present, which I also happened to put on my “what I want to do this year” list. We got a cat! and named him Tonks. I had an idea
I painted today. Experimented with my idea of using dictionary cutouts on canvas (mixed media!). It was tricky getting them to stay at first, but liberal amounts of glue-stick glue and acrylic paint seemed to help and gives the painting a really nice effect. I went with a simple still life piece and think it
I finished my second fairy house today. Added all the decorations, admittedly, mostly glitter. I also found a few other odds and ends to put inside – my compact mirror and some tiny animals from boxes of Red Rose tea (or whatever it’s called). I used my bottle cap to top the thread-spool-crochet-topped mushroom table

So today, I got in my gaming keypad and spent the morning getting used to it while listening to some podcast about Sherlock Holmes (the movie, with RDJr.). I found a sweet spot in Nagrand above the throne of elementals where, well, all the elementals live and you can farm for motes to your hearts
She restores life where-ever she goes and when her light fades new life shines. Her last breath will be her most beautiful moment – her life fulfilled in restoring others to see the beauty in theirs. (16×20 Acrylic) Based on my Concept.
I sent in an application to be in an art show in April, and decided to go with my fairies if I get in. So today, I thought it would be fun to make a time-lapse-ish video of what it looks like for me to paint a fairy on an Art Card. I’m right handed
