One Year (of Painting)

Last year, today, I started painting. I took my first painting lesson and painted some flowers in a vase. So I thought, that it would be fun to put up my first painting, and my last painting side by side.  I didn’t paint today, so it’s not *exactly* a 8/25-8/25 year, but it’s close, and […]

I wanted to show the TARDIS in an […]

Again it’s relatively simplistic, although, I had a broader color palette this time and did an undercoat of pink before applying the blue to make an interesting periwinkle sky. The fairy’s dress is […]
