Fun stuff

So, clearly I haven't stuck to the twice a week update thing. I'll work on it. For now, I thought I'd post about a class I took this past weekend at The Wild Nest. It was taught by Sandra Feazel, who does really amazing paintings. For this class, she taught us how to paint roses. 

I'm actually really happy with how mine turned out:

Sandra's example was shades of pink, but I went a different direction, color-wise. I'm not really a pink kind of girl, so I wanted to do something a little different. It always amazes me in classes how everyone's project ends up being completely different. 

Anyway, as usual, I completely forgot to take pictures of everyone else's stuff. They were all great, though.

And the rest of it I'll have a big post about sometime in the near future. Here's a tiny little preview:
