Trying something new....


Last weekend my friend and I went to Sanibel Island for the weekend!  The weather was great and Sanibel was quiet as usual, at least for now until the "snow birds" come to town. 

Anyway, she recently started painting and she brought her supplies with just in case the weather was bad, like that ever happens! 

Friday night she painted while I watched, I'm not a painter unless it walls, ceilings, etc. you get the picture.   Saturday night after dinner out came the supplies and I thought, okay, lets try it.  I had been thinking about what I might paint, or at least attempt.

So here is my first attempt: 


It was very relaxing while painting the first one so after returning home I ventured to Michael's and picked up some of my own art supplies and last night, after a frustrating day at the office, I painted this:


Looking forward to continued improvement!  Have a great rest of your week!

  1. Does painting run in the family?
    DeeDee has shown us her talents, too.
    I like the colors in your second painting.
    For having a frustrating day, it's very soothing.

    1. Thank you Christine for your comment. This is the first time since elementary school that I have painted. I was never a painter but want to find fun things to do that do not require a lot of thinking. I'm also getting back to my jewelry making and blowing the dust off my camera as well! Have a great time on your trip back home.

  3. Good for you! Frustrating days can happen even when you live in paradise I guess))). Good to have a creative outlet and I think the second picture particularly looks very relaxing and serene!

You have entered an award free zone. I would love hearing from you so go ahead an leave a message. Have a great day!

At peace...

It is amazing what a calming feeling being near or on the water has, at least for me.  It is peaceful, it removes whatever I had on my mind ...
