"See The Beauty" painting on Ebay & progress pics
This painting, entitled "See The Beauty" is up for auction on Ebay. For more info on her and more pics, please visit the listing. Here is the story of the inspiration behind the painting... Ask anyone who knows me and they will tell you I’m a worrier. Much of the time I worry about things so much, even things beyond my control, that I miss the beauty in the everyday things of life.
Lately, I’m trying to remind myself to take time to enjoy the little things…a cool autumn breeze blowing through the trees, the smell of the air after it rains, my sweet little boy’s infectious laugh, his amazing smile…just a few of the million little things to get lost in the beauty of…every day.
And I just love sharing progress pics with you guys, below are a few that I took along the way of this piece...I wish I had taken more, but I got so caught up with this one that I forgot to stop and take pics while I was painting her face and the details.
I was hoping to have more pics of the painting from last week, but alas best laid plans don't always work out. Just as I was sitting down to finish her on Friday, I got a call from Aiden's preschool telling me that he had a rash on his face, neck, back, and chest. Well of course I dropped everything and got there as fast as I could.
He was not happy about leaving school early and I pretty much had to pry him away from the door leading to the playground where he'd happily been playing before I arrived. We were all afraid that it was super contagious so I had called his doctor on my way to pick him up to try to get him in. Thankfully he didn't think it was anything serious, but was quite baffled as to what had caused it.
By the next morning, the rash had miraculously disappeared. Hallelujah!!! I was sooooooo relieved!!! I was dreading having to tell Aiden that he couldn't go to his friend's birthday party on Sunday and I'm so thankful we never had to go down that road! Aiden loves birthday parties and he would have been so heartbroken.
So the pics below are first of the background, then with a couple of collage elements added, and lastly the drawing of the girl before I started painting her. I really want to start filming while I paint again, but I have to get a longer firewire cable for my camera first. Ever since we got our new iMac, I've been in need of it, but keep forgetting to pick one up. Hope I can bribe my hubby into picking up one on his way home.......hmmmmmm.....:)
