Passion Flowers and Clay

Today in paint class we painted passion flowers. I have wanted to paint them for some time now and finally got around to teaching them.

I think they turned out beautifully - especially the rouging of paint on the box which I usually do all the backgrounds but wanted the ladies to see how it was done so they did their own.



Jenny won the drawing and got to take home my project piece painted in class.

I'm working like a mad women trying to get some stuff done for the painting convention I'm going to next week. I have been creating with clay lots but am out of a lot of the colors I really want to use so I'm hoping my big order comes this week. All of these items are being donated to the auction that is held at convention. I got the baskets on clearance at Hobby Lobby and paid no more than $6 for one. Can you believe I only paid $4 for the basket below with the red roses on it.

I did one side on this basket with the lighter pink roses (thought it looked very shabby chic) but ran out of clay to create more for the other side so hopefully that will come in so that I can take it down with both sides done.

I'm also creating calla lilies, daisies, and an Iris for the other baskets I have an also hoping to get some roosters painted. I share all of that with you of course (IF) and when I get them done.

Well, I best get back to work. Hope you have a fabulous day!
