More WIPS and Finished Painting

Good morning and happy Sunday! I missed out on blogging last weekend, due to a new obsession of mine! Ancestry.com! Has anyone else tried this? It's fun, but very time consuming so I haven't had time for blogging or much painting either. I did finish the last project I was working on and already found a home for it with a good friend from work.
I also started these 2 projects:
I must be in a blue/green mood lately, as I seem to reach for those colors over and over. Well, here is something a little different, and I'm not at all sure where I'm going with it!
I also started a new class this week with Misty Mawn and she has been encouraging us to try writing poetry. This is something completely new for me, as the last time I remember writing any poetry, I was in the 4th grade! Here is what I've written so far: I wanted wings to fly to make my trip go faster. But my wings were made of cloth. So instead I wrapped them around me and walked. I met two others who were walking too. So we walked together, talking. At the top of the hill I looked down and saw my family. My companions and I arrived together, laughing. I'm sure it needs a lot of work, but it was fun trying something new, something out of my comfort zone. Funny, but that's what church was about today...learning to do things that you aren't always comfortable with, doing something new in whatever area the Lord might lead you. How about you? Done anything out of your comfort zone lately? I'm linking with Sunday Sketches and hope you will join me! Have a wonderful week!

I love how that top painting has come together really beautifully.
Keep working on your poems...everything new takes practice and then fullfillment follows. Good for you stepping out beyond your usual comfort zone.

Abby said...

Absolutely! Trying something new is sometimes difficult, but how else can we progress! I'm currently illustrating a chidren's book that I wrote and a little out of my comfort zone, but I will finish!!!!

I LOVE ancestry.com! I did the free trial once, and was hooked! I cannot afford the normal costs, so I went crazy for those two weeks and got as much information as I could.

Amazing paintings, as usual!

Heather said...

love your top painting, so pretty and peaceful!

Great work Debbie...and I do like that you are trying to work outside your comfort zone! I know it is difficult but you've done very well!

I took a drawing class with Misty Mawn a couple of years ago...great teacher.
Cheers
