First Day Of My Visit To Newfoundland

Above is actually a view of the ocean from Signal Hill...there was so much fog today that they couldn't land our plane, we ended up having to fly to the other side of the island to refuel before attempting to land again. We only ended up being 3.5 hours late...better late than never though! At least it was warm out and it ended up being a nice sunny day by the end of it all! :)

Below is me with a big, friendly and cuddly Newfoundland dog :)

Above is one of the views from Signal Hill...still a lot of fog but beautiful none the less!

The little white speck in the ocean was a fishing boat going out to sea, I only had my iphone on me to take pics with at the time...better ones to come hopefully :) This was only day one! ;) I'm hoping to take in some of the George Street Festival as well as check out some of the local art galleries among other things...more to come! :)

A Wee Painted Bird House :)

I was out picking up some lil canvases and odds and ends the other day and saw this little bird house and couldn't resist the urge to paint it ;)

Here are a few process pics :) Below: as is - straight from the store

Above: The first coating of favourite colour red...why not? ;)

Decided to paint some yellow sunflowers on the sides - also one of my favourite flowers! (I had a hard time getting the yellow to stay vibrant though...took a few coats)

And there you go, the finished product! :) I think I'll paint a little more vines and such around the back but all in all, it was a fun lil' afternoon project! :) I hope you enjoyed! :)

A New Mandala

Just a quick post to share a bit about my latest mandala...not sure if it's done yet but here are some process pics to have a peek at :)

Above is my starting point for the background, at this point I had just peeled off the masking fluid I was experimenting with. Still getting the hang of what to do with that stuff ;)

Above: Doodling on the design in pencil

Acrylic on Canvas
1'x1'x 0.5'

This is the final piece (so far...heh heh heh...I'm sure I'll find something else to do with it but at the moment, I'll call it done) :) Good Night! :)
