Do you ever feel like you are in a painting rut? I know there are time when I do... kinda like today! There is a huge project that I am currently working on that has taken over all of my time. As I sat down this morning to start working on it again I found it hard to get going. As an artist there are many times when you just need to take a break! I needed to paint something else, even if it was just for a moment. So, I quickly grabbed one of my sketchbooks and found this sketch of a girl I drew while sitting in church a few weeks ago. She is the cutest little girl and I loved how different her profile was from other faces I have drawn. So, here is a rough paint of that little girl to help get my creative juices flowing! Sometimes you need to surrender just a little time to paint what you want. Now I feel like I can tackle the world!!!

Here is a painting I did for my new born niece! She is about a month old now and so cute.

Finished Mural

Here is the final picture of the Beach Mural with everything back in place. I love the way the lamps play with the colors and how cozy it feels.
