Painting BIG

So I know I shared on Facebook the large paintings that I've been doing - I'm working on another one right now and will hopefully have it done to show you by the end of the week. I SO LOVED painting whatever came to mind. I had done this painting with the intention of donating it to the local Air Museums auction that I've donated to for 5 years now and well.....I debated and debated about it and decided that I needed to paint another one for the auction and I did but decided that I wanted the one I donate to be on black so I'm painting another one this week so that I can get it to the museum. The first one I painted LOOKS amazing in my living room above my fireplace - it took the place or a rather LARGE clock that I had there and I must look at the painting about 20 times a day to see what time it is - and that brings "wow, I did that" still quite amazed with my accomplishment.

This is the second painting - it's at the Gallery in Byron right now for sale

and this is the first one I painted above my fireplace. Perfect place and space if you ask me.
Been a busy week - had high hopes of posting every day this week but missed yesterday unfortnately. Yesterday my oldest got his drivers license and my middle got his learners permit since he turned 15 on Monday - they both passed their tests with flying colors and now the worrying begins!! I know I have to let go but I'm worried that something is going to happen - gonna have to turn it over to God because I'll be a nervous wreck everytime they get behind the wheel.
I just got back from a fabulous trip to California with my friend Donna. Will share pictures with you all this week! We had so much fun with our friend April and all the other ladies that came out to paint! April took Donna and I to Hollywood which was awesome and it was cool to be back in California - that sea air took me back to so many memories I had from growing up there until 6th grade! Loved it there and always thought I'd go back but never did - Tennessee became home and then well - if you read my blog you know the rest of the story - military life and moving around - and now Middle Georgia is home.
My oldest gets his wisdom teeth out tomorrow - all 4 - surgery is required and I hope it goes well - please keep him in your prayers!!
Hope you have a great day!
