Taught a painting class this morning - had a blast - we painted poppies on a tall terra cotta pot ~ everyone did a gorgeous job - I managed to take my camera with me today but did forget to check with them to see if it would be okay if I posted their pics - so after I do that - I'll share the photos.
Here is what I painted this weekend:
THIS WINDOW TOOK ME VERY LONG! I have never been a fan of painting magnolias. I love them and think they are a gorgeous flower - I am a southern girl you know ~ LOL.
This took me twice as long to paint as the other windows I've been painting - just cause the detail that goes into a magnolia and of course since it's not my favorite flower to paint I was VERY critical ~ but have to admit I'm pleased with the final product.
I also painted an apron so that I can wear it to my painting classes and not get paint all over my clothes ~ plus I just thought it would be cute to wear.
Here is a close up of the apron - wild rose with pansies and daisies.
Found this great plate and knew it had to be painted - to plain with the great decoration and nothing in the middle. I painted a peach on it and it's actually going to be given to someone at a conference - the lady that got it from me needed something that was really "Georgia" so what better than a PEACH?!
One of my favorite flowers has always been the dogwood. The trees are absolutely gorgeous when they are in bloom and I really like the ones that have that hint of pink on the edges.
I am doing something really exciting tonight - I've been invited to the Perry Arts League to do a demonstration for their program tonight. I'm very nervous but excited! I'll share with ya tomorrow how it went.
Have a great week!
