Something New for PPF and SS

Hello and happy weekend! Well, it's almost here...smiles. Over a year ago, I found a piece of wood and for the last 12 months its been sitting in my craft room. I found it when we had to move our stuff for the new carpeting we had installed last month, and finally painted it. I had every intention of doing some pretty cone flowers in the shabby chic style, but that's not what I ended up painting!

This wood is solid and heavy, and has many layers of paints, most of them from whoever owned it before me! I added my own layers of paint and some papers. Then I sat quietly for the longest time, and just prayed that God would guide me, as I've been struggling for the longest time to find my own style of painting. This painting is what came out after that prayer! How amazing is that!
I really love this piece and it looks so cute sitting on my mantle. (It's way to heavy to hang!)
I plan to link up with PPF and SS and hope you will join me! (See links on the right) Have a wonderful weekend!

More Poppies

Hello! I guess I'm still on a poppy kick, as I have created yet another poppy painting!
This one is on an artist board, with papers and something new I picked up; gesso for watercolors.

I'm not sure why blogger won't let me turn this picture, but this is not how it looks on my computer! Here is a close up.

If you want to see better pictures, it's for sale in my Etsy shop. I'm linking with Paint Party Friday and Sunday Sketches this week. (Links on the right) Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Friday everyone! I spring cleaned a few weeks ago, and found an old painting that I started and never finished. So I gave myself the task of trying to finish it before working on anything new. The reason I never finished it, is because I hated to cover up the background! It was so pretty and now it's been so long sinced I painted it, I'm not even sure how I did it! So here is the painting after a couple of days of working on it:

I still have many ideas for the painting, so I'm glad I found it in my closet! I'm linking to PPF and SS this week! I can't wait to see what the other artist's have been creating!
