A Heart Right Under Her Nose...


I'm always amazed at the interesting places I find hearts when I take the time to look around and see them. I never noticed that my dog, Maggie, has a heart-shaped nose until my son, Scotty, took a super close-up shot of her face and there on the computer monitor was her heart-shaped nose staring right at me. And my super-duper heart scouting daughter, Paige, found the heart-shaped dirt spot on the end of the DuraFlame log package (if you squint your eyes, you can really see the heart). Finally, I learned how to make origami hearts at our last Girl Scout Meeting. So Cute!

Finishing Up...Finally!

#13 in 50 Painting Series and also #2
 in Flora's Bloom True E-course
Sadly, Flora Bowley's Bloom True E-Course is over and after about 7 weeks I haven't even finished one painting. What happened? Life, I guess! Thankfully Life has resumed a normal pace again and I have been slowly pulling this painting together. My first painting underwent a re-do and is back to square one so I haven't included any photos of it yet.

I still struggle with letting go and letting the brush paint freely...I overthink and analyze everything. I have a long way to go in this intuitive process, but I am really enjoying it more than anything I've tried so far. I am going to continue in this direction and see where it leads me.  

The small flower painting below I started a while ago. I've been adding to it with leftover paint from my palette at the end of my painting sessions. I don't remember where I was headed with this pieces, but now it's getting new life in a Flora-esque way.
