So here are the results of my fun new instrument:
the first day:
I've really been itching to paint for a while now. It's been years and years! With four small children, there is no way I am going to bring out that mess. Maybe if I had a day with no kids in the house, I could do it. Otherwise I'll just wait until they are all in school... or I have my own studio (a girl can dream right?!) :) I decided to try and curb some of those cravings by "painting" on the computer. I really like how it turned out (top right). I can see a lot more painting in my future now. ;)
Third and Fourth day:
Neil told me to stop drawing flowers and mushrooms and draw something else. When I asked him what, he said umbrellas. Ok, umbrellas it is. I drew this girl in the rain and then colored her in this morning. I think I really like her. Though there is much improvement that can be made in my drawing skills. :) The little saying is from the Winnie the Pooh movie we have.
If you are on instagram, I've been sharing these with the tag #artbydb if you want to check in in the future and see what else I've been doing.
All of this has to do with my word for the year... which I will share soon. I'm still rolling ideas and thoughts around in my head. So far I love it, and it's been really good for me. :)
Happy Monday everyone!!
