A Home for My Birdies

So, I bought a frame on sale at the craft store for my Little Blue Birds painting. My original intent was to give it away as a gift to a friend, but I'm not good at parting with my paintings, so that didn't happen. I still put the painting in the frame and ended up hanging it in my painting room:

I painted it with a small, white border that I masked out with masking tape. I thought that it would kind of serve as a mat, but that didn't work out. The border was too thin and the lip on the frame was the exact same width as the white border. Would this painting look 100 times better with a mat? Absolutely! Do I care? Not really. I think it looks just fine without a mat.

Modern Floral Watercolor 5

I got a new handmade watercolor pallet from Designs by Rachel Beth on Etsy and I couldn't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about how this one turned out-- especially the yellow rose shape. That one didn't turn out so great the last time I tried it. I think using a smaller brush helped.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.
