Launching a New Dream

Hello Hello my crafty peeps, it's finally Friday!!!!  I'm not sure what our plans are but I think everyone around here has to work which means I'm babysitting (translation = not much crafty time for me).  I guess we'll just have to wait and see if I can squeeze some in somewhere.  Anyway, I've been working on a few paintings the last couple of nights and I finished one:


I wanted to do something a bit different from my last few pieces and this is what I came up with.  This is a 11x14 canvas, all paint except the clouds.  I used a stencil for the clouds and to trace the hot air balloons on the canvas.


Here is a closer look at the hot air balloons.  The little brown bird is a BoBunny rubon.


This is a quote that my Mom use to have on a plaque at her house and now it lives in my studio :D  Pretty good words to remember don't you think!

Well before I head out to start my day,  I'd like to WELCOME our newest bloggie friends Tricia & Lori!!  Ladies, THANK YOU so much for stopping by and deciding to join along!  I'm so happy to have you here :D

Have a Beautiful, Creative & Inspiring Day!!!
