This weekend I decided to take a break from my current projects for an afternoon to sit in the sun and paint purely for fun and the sake of painting. It was great, except for the sunburn I got but at least we finally had weather worthy of a sunburn!
The object I ended up painting was my patio door stopper (of all things to paint, I know, lol), just a big heavy rock I found by our recycling shed. I loved it the way it was but felt it wouldn't hurt to add a wee bit more character and colour to it! Plus, I haven't painted a rock in years, I felt like a kid again! :)
Here's a shot of the fruits of my Saturday afternoon labours:
Pretty simple and straight forward but I love it! :) The writing on the sides states a couple of my favourite quotes:
"Earth Laughs in Flowers" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
"I perhaps owe having become a painter to flowers" - Claude Monet
Between working full time this week, trying to finish multiple paintings, re-branding considerations and trying take and post new photos to blog with, I have had no time to really connect with my new creative community. I've been quite absent from the online/twitter/fb world for the most part. Hopefully you are all still out there somewhere creating like crazy! I'll be checking in with you guys tomorrow, I can't wait to see what everyone's been up to!
Well, that's it for another weekend! Hope your weekend was as good and relaxing as mine was! Back to the grind tomorrow! :) Good night everyone!
