magic of acrylics

Well, I won't have any paintings to post on here today- I got so frustrated with what I was painting that I decided to start over and painted over what I had done so far. That is the wonderful thing about acrylic paints- you can easily start over. I have a better idea of what I want my painting to look like this time. Hopefully I will have a better result. :)
The weather here in NC is awesome today- sadly I can't stay outside and enjoy it. I am heading to work. Have a great weekend and remember- SPRING FORWARD tonight.

You painted over the blue background ones I saw there at the house? What did you change your mind to? Enjoy the weather it is awesome :)

I rarely know exactly what I'm going to do until the paintings evolve, I love creating backgrounds though so I guess it's all good :) One thing I did buy this year is a sketchbook and I reference my little drawings quite often when I'm painting, going back to the sketchbook after a background starts speaking to me and then I find a sketch that fits the piece. I work backwards

Can't wait to see what you come up with your paintings!

I just visited my blog-pal sweet repeats and saw that you have started your own blog - congrats. It's fun and confounding all at once:) I've had mine almost a year now and it has gone by so fast!
Come visit sometime and I look forward to seeing more of your work!
