Not Done Yet... A painting for my Dad...
It has been forever since I painted anything! I'm more of an illustrator than a fine artist in that department...so it was a little intimidating to get started, but my Dad's birthday is coming up quick & I couldn't think of a dang thing to get him. He's the typical guy who has everything he needs & is near impossible to buy for. At Christmas I had the same problem, so I wanted to make up for it by gifting him something super extra special for his birthday. I had the idea to do a painting of all his grandkids, as this is something I know he could appreciate & I know he doesn't have one of these already.
At this point I guess I'm near done... might be able to finish it this morning & then go get it framed.
It's been fun switching creative gears & doing something completely different for a change!
I'm a crafty gal who lives in Ohio...raising 2 young children with my husband. We have the cutest bunny, Yuki, in the whole wide world!
I heart craftster dot org...if you haven't visited the site, for the love of everything creative...go, man go!
I make stuff...lots of stuff!

We had the most amazing kitty until this past December. Perhaps we'll get another kitty one day when the time is right, but as of now (September 2011) we have a dwarf bunny!
Now enough about me... what about you?
