New Sunday Sketches

Good morning and thank you for dropping by! I finished a painting last week and started on another one. The first one is similar to one I did in my journal, but it's now painted on an 8x10 wood canvas.

It has many layers of paper, paint, stamps and molding paste and was really fun to make!
This next painting is only about 1/2 way finished.

I started one like this, but didn't like where it was going, and I may just end up painting over it. I'm enjoying this new one so much more!
We had a big storm last night with large hail! Here is a picture of the hail we saw.

Hopefully we don't have any damage to our roof! Some of the hail was golf ball size! My son and his family lost power so they came over for a while.
Stop over to Sophia's blog to see other wonderful sketches! (The link is on the right)
I hope everything is going well for you all on this Sunday!

Your tulips turned out lovely. I really like the colour you chose for them. :) And look at you....off to another painting. How inspiring!

Beautiful tulip, they shout Spring. Love the little house in the woods so far, hope to see it when it is finished. I have never seen hail that size,only in pictures. The largest I have see here is maybe 1/3 of an inch.

Lovely painting of the tulips. It is very spring :)
An interesting WIP, I am looking to see where you take it.

Wow, that's some big hail! I hope everyone had their vehicles in their garages! Lovely paintings. I really like the tulips. I saw some at the grocery store yesterday and almost came home with them. They always make it feel like spring to me.

Deanna said...

I love the tulips! Very pretty. The other painting is looking good so far. No need to paint over it. lol.

We're due for a nasty storm some time tonight. Wonder if it's the same one. It was very warm here today and there's a cool front behind it so they say we have the perfect makings for a tornado. Fun stuff.
