A Brief Hiatus
I had decided to take a brief break. Since I had painted everyday for 9 months I decided that I had earned a bit of a break from the Internet 😀
While I haven’t been posting regularly I have been working on a few different things that I thought I would share with you.
I took on a commission back in September and spent almost a month creating this painting. Here are some step by step progress shots
I decided to change the background to put her in a more natural environment. Originally I was going to add extra details like leaves etc. But I felt that it could detract from the detail in the chameleon.
Since I have been back to the daily high school teacher thing it’s been hard to paint everyday and the 5 am thing, while still happening has been tough. I think I just need to redirect my energy a bit and I think I am coming to the end of my time off and am going to jump back in.
However on the home front I just finished installing a reclaimed wood wall in my kitchen. Please note my fabulous penny counter!
We finished the wall but I still have to seal it so I will post a picture of it finished soon. It used to be two see rate door but we took those out and installed bypass doors. I still have to paint those but that will happen next weekend. I painted the wall brown so that any spots that you could see through didn’t have glaring white peeking through.
Have a great week!
