My Camera Returns!

The auto-focus on my camera died, and I was without it for a couple weeks while it went back to Canon for repair. I just got it back, and I didn’t realize how much I missed it until it was back in my hot little hands!

The kids have been back in school a little over a week, and I’m working on getting back into the swing of things. Who knew having free time could be so difficult?

I’ve been working on a couple of large (16×20) pieces that were similar, but used different colors.


I was going to give the bottom painting feathery edges like the top painting, but I got interrupted by my kids and their friends and the paint had dried before I could work my magic. So I went with plan B and tried to make this more of a twisted bit of rock or tree, rather than a piece of the universe. I’ve put a few images of jasper on my Pinterest rock board, and have spent a ridiculous amount of time playing with the patterns and colors in the rocks.


On the left I dripped paint and then smushed the splots with wax paper. The hardest part is having to wait for things to dry before I can move on.


So this one, I thought it was done, but now I’m not so sure. I’m going to have to sit on it for a few days and see. Sometimes I tape a painting up in different places around my house and see how it looks.


Here are a couple of close ups. I really like the colors.


So! I’m not sure where I’m going with the top/orange/rock painting, so it may never see the light of day. Once I determine if I’m finished with the blue one (and figure out a name for it) I’ll post it on Etsy. Whatever I do, I’m just happy to be able to take actual pictures and not phone photos!

  1. I like them both! The rock/tree one is kind of a slightly different style from your other stuff, but I think it’s looking really neat! The textures are great.

    Thanks Alli! I still kind of wanted to create the same atmospheric vibe as the blue one, so I might start again and try that with the orange/yellow/red palette.
