Eye Candy Friday


It seems a little conceited to show a painting I did as eye candy but it’s quite seasonal and, while it’s hardly fine art, I’m proud of it. I owe a lot of it to Connie, the awesome woman who teaches paint night at my library. But I know that I get to take some credit for it, too. I’ve never considered myself to have much artistic talent but I’ve learned since I started playing around with art journaling this year that lots of practice and taking lessons does actually lead to improvement. How ’bout that?

And how ’bout this: it’s the weekend! And NaBloPoMo is over so I will see you on Monday!

  1. It’s a charming picture and far beyond what I would aspire to. ‘Tis true that flexing the creative muscle strengthens it. We shall miss you, but try to enjoy your weekend.

  2. What a lovely winter painting you did! I heard about a paint night an hour away that is held in a bar; that would not improve my miniscule artistic ability!

  3. The picture is beautiful, Carole – and sharing it is not conceited at all! I know how much work goes into the creation of art! So, share – and share boldly!! And, here is to having a FANTASTIC NaBloPoMo free weekend!! Let the weekending festivities begin!! XOXO

  4. Your painting is beautiful! My sister & I went to a paint night last year & I just got that winter painting out & hung for the season. Have a great weekend!

  5. I LOVE this picture! The red bird in the trees just makes my heart sing. You have really tapped into your inner artist! Lovely, Carole!

  6. Painting is perfect for this time of year. I used to see cardinals when I lived in CT. Here in northern ME I have not seen any. I miss seeing then against the snow.
    Happy weekending!

  7. Well, Carole, I think it is charming, and you should be very pleased. I wish I had painted it! Have a great weekend.

  8. It’s a gorgeous painting! I’m so glad you shared it with us. Think of it as sharing your knitting with us. Another beautiful expression of creativity.

  9. I think it’s a lovely painting – thank you for sharing it! (and hope you’re having a wonderful blog-free weekend!)
