On my table

I was hoping to finish this sweet little fairy painting last evening, but I'm not quite sure what I want to do with the background.  The fairy is closed to being finished except attaching her wings and a little line work.  I had went up into our attic the other day and saw this wood panel that I had started last fall.  The colors jumped out at me and I knew it would work well for a little fairy.  The original painting had bleeding heart flowers on it, but wasn't working and that's why it ended up in the attic.


Overall I like the background, but it just needs a little something yet.  Maybe a few butterflies?   It's definitely a very springy color palette with the nice robin egg blue.  Which by the way I saw my first robins on Wednesday!  Yeah, spring is on the way and the days are getting longer and warmer!

DSC_0262 I've seen a few pictures of hot air balloons lately and can't seem to get them out of my head, so I started a new painting with one in it.  Not sure what direction it is going to go, but I'm excited.  My husband won a raffle for a hot air balloon ride this past year, so this spring or summer we are going to go on our first ever hot air balloon ride.  I'm excited, but definitely a little bit nervous and scared to go. 

We're headed to Madison today for Fischer's last hockey tournament of the season.  It's been a long season and he's definitely ready to be finished (and so are his parents!)but the weekend will be filled with fun, grandparents and friends!

Have a lovely weekend filled with your own kind of fun!

I love this painting, maybe because she appears to be a redhead like me?! I think the colors are very happy and spring like. I love all your things and looked at your Etsy store as well! I hope to be able to purchase some day. Have a great weekend and enjoy the family time!
