New Painting

I finally finished shopping and wrapping for Christmas and had some time to paint. I really wasn't sure how this would turn out, since I started with a picture of my daughter and made some changes to her pose. (Sorry Tori!) I loved the original picture but wanted to try some of the techniques I've been learning in Misty's class.

I'm on vacation from work starting Dec. 24th through Jan. 3rd. I'm really looking forward to a nice long break!!

Stage 2!!

We are so happy about the news we received this week on my nephew Andrew! The doctor reports that the cancer was stage 2 and he has removed all of it! Thank you to everyone for praying for him!
I've been so busy shopping and baking that I haven't had much time to spend painting. Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow. Meanwhile, here is a picture of my oldest grandson, Grant, on Halloween.

Is he the cutest golfer or what?
Have a restful weekend!

Painting Faces-Andrew Update

Andrew's surgery went well Saturday and the Doctor thinks he got all of the cancer, but we will not know for sure until Wednesday or Thursday. Thank you for your continued prayers! I know God is listening. :-)
I found a little time to try Misty Mawn's face painting technique. Here is one of my first attempts.

I also made my youngest grandson, Levi, a new hat and booties.

We think he is so adorable!

Have you listed anything new?
Happy Thursday!

Andrew's doctor called about the scan he had on Monday. He could not find any signs of cancer anywhere other then the original spot in his colon. We are so relieved! Hopefully this means that the cancer is in stage 2, but I think we have to wait for the surgery Saturday for confirmation.
Thank you for your prayers!
