MY OWN ART....MMM!




ARE YOU YOUR OWN WORSE CRITIC???? I DID DO DECORATIVE PAINTING FOR ABOUT FOUR YEARS, WHICH IS DONE MOSTLY BY PATTERN WITH SOME FREEHAND. I DECIDED TO TRY MY HAND AT PAINTING MY OWN CANVASES, (IT WAS FUN) BUT IM ALWAYS UNSURE OF MOST THINGS I CREATE HOWEVER THEY ARE STILL HANGING IN OUR BEDROOM BECAUSE HUBBY WANTS THEM THERE,,,HE IS A SWEETIE! THE PUSSYWILLOW PAINTING I DO FEEL IS SPECIAL AS IT WAS A PROJECT THAT MYSELF AND OUR 15 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER DID TOGETHER, I PAINTED THE BRANCHES AND SHE USED HER FINGER TO PUT ON THE BLOOMS.

What talent you have.. I can paint any wall or piece of furniture you want me to, but give me a canvas and ask me to paint something and girl it would probably be the last time..lol Our Murphy dog showed up a year ago now.. I'm not sure if he's a shelty or miniature collie.. I know he's my bud..just the smartest dog..
I'm ready for green and warm too..

Hey Janet! I love the art that you did! I especially love the pussy willow one. Love that story also.

You know that I am definately my worst critic.

Don't be afraid, do some more canvases, cause I think they are great!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog Janet, and enabling me to meet you. You have a wonderful artistic talent. The pussy willow canvas is superb. Reminds me of home.

These are lovely. I used to do a lot of decorative painting. I'd love to try something on canvas sometime. Maybe when I retire.

Your art is just wonderful. I just love the fact that you and your daughter did the pussy willow one together. How clever to make the buds with her finger. Very talented. Thanks for stopping by, I tried to leave a comment the other day and something wasn't working, it just kept asking me to inter the word verification and would never accept the letters. Anyway thanks for your lovely comments on my breakfast room redo. I really appreciate it. BTW your thrifty mirror is just fabulous. Hugs, Marty
