Finished Sketch & 2 New Paintings!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you all are enjoying a relaxing day. Below is my finished painting I started a couple of weeks ago.

I'll have it in my Etsy shop later today if anyone is interested in buying this painting.
I also took Christy Tomlinson's She Art class this last week, and finished these 2 paintings.

I took the class to learn how to paint backgrounds in a more relaxed manner. Mine always seem so stiff, and take me forever to do! I have to say, she throws everything and the kitchen sink on her backgrounds and it's such a fun way to paint! I really relaxed and just had fun with both of these pieces! I bought more canvases yesterday, so expect to see more!
I'm off to check out Sophia's blog and find out what everyone else has been making this week! I hope you'll join us! (see link on the right)

Hello Debbie,
All three are wonderful and have a sweet Spring like feeling. I love learning to loosen up and go faster. For me I sense it will take time to do so.... but every once in a while there is a good flow of fast, fun and enjoyment, yea.

These are all really pretty. I have so much fun when I make collage backgrounds first (new to me to) but they are relaxing.

Love the pink/green combo! I've heard others say it is a fun class, too.

That's funny! Everything and the kitchen sink! I've been seeing "she art" all over blogland and I do agree, her backgrounds are very interesting! Good job with your canvases! Patsy from
