More Art ~
Here are some things I finished yesterday for the Spring Home & Garden Show this
weekend at the Perry, GA Fairgrounds. I also went to a store that carries store fixtures
and found an awesome display stand that is in the process of being painted and revamped.
I wish I had taken pictures of it before I started painting it - it was OshKosh B'Gosh clothes
but revamped will display the windows and paintings just like I envisioned.

More paint and clay ~
I have so loved combining these two things. The Studio Clay by Sculpey and Donna Dewberry is amazing!

Grapes and vines

More of the High Definition paint ~ Bird of Paradise on a 20x30 canvas

Right now Macon is having it's yearly Cherry Blossom Festival and next week in paint class we are painting cherry blossoms so it inspired this window. Again, I just love the clay blossoms that hopefully are subtle enough but really just make this painting come alive to me.

This painting has been screaming at me all week!
Each day it got louder and louder - yes, my paintings talk and sometimes scream at me.
This one was missing something so I added a leaf to the middle blank area and now it's finished.
I was going to add some clay like DD did on hers that we painted at certification but I like it the way it is so will leave the clay off of this one.

Tomorrow is set up day so not sure if I'll be back before Sunday. Have a wonderfully blessed day!
