Painting progress & projects . . .

I've been spending lots of (happy) painting hours on my fundraiser artscape leaf and it's about 2/3rds completed :-) loving every minute!

It's rewarding to see a vision you have in your mind appear before you. The base of everything has been painted, now it's just a matter of adding all the fine details which I love. . .  all the shading and brush strokes that make the images pop.

We've had the cutest little red squirrel visit our garden these past few weeks, and he has found himself tucked into the leaf. I still have to add those cute little ear tuffs to him.

 Another project I'm participating in this month is "We are all Connected" created by author * poet * artist Beatricia Sagar.  Beatricia has sent out blank puzzle pieces to artists all over the world to paint and mail back to her. Connecting us all world wide during these unprecedented times that have kept us apart. For my piece, I painted a Robin's nest and 3 little eggs paying homage to the Robins who are nesting.

Such a sweet squirrel painting and the puzzle project is intriguing.
