I painted this background several weeks ago and just didn't know how to finish it. Over the weekend I saw a picture in a magazine and knew the fish would be perfect!

I'm glad I had something ready to go when inspiration hit! Hope your week is going well!

"Taking Flight"

I bought Kelly Rae Robert's book, "Taking Flight" recently and really loved it! I created the painting below, from her inspiring techniques in chapter one.

If you haven't read this book yet, I really recommend it.

We had such a nice weekend with our family as we celebrated my husbands 50th birthday.
Here is an updated picture of my daughter Tori, and her husband Dean. I can't believe she is almost 7 months pregnant!

My son Chuck, his wife Amy and my grandson Grant, spent time with us too.

I hope your weekend was special too!

Something Traded Something New

I traded napkins with Suze Perrott a couple of weeks ago and found the perfect spot for it on this painting.(see april post for info on napkin transfer)

I also tried a new background I saw on Suzan Buckner's blog, although I made just a few changes. I just love to learn new techniques. Thanks for sharing Suze and Suzan! I hope you are having a good week!
