This is the rocks I have painted.

So far I have painted 4 rocks. I painted the one with a rooster for a friend. I sent it to him. It cost $7.15 just to send it. I don’t think I will be sending rocks to people anymore. But he is sick and I wanted to cheer him up. It cost less than flowers to send. This is what I painted. After my friend saw it she asked me to paint her a rock. I am going to paint a heart with dots. It is called a mandella rock. Not sure how that will turn out, but I found a heart shaped rock. She has been my friend for 43 years. I can’t turn her down.

I then painted two small rocks for Christmas. You paint the head on one and the body on a little bit bigger rock. I painted Santa. I love it. It is only 3″ long. You can put magnets on the back and  put them on your fridge.

I count that as 2 rocks. The next rock I love. I make it spooky. I found a rock and painted it like a book. I painted an eye and put puff paint for the blood tear coming out of the eye. I used colored pencil to color in the front of the book. I will show more as I do them.

Another painting

I signed up for another painting. I love the Vincent Van Gogh painting Starry Night.

I looked on the class schedule for paintings they are going to teach. The place that I go to had the Starry Night painting. Well their version of it. It is pretty hard to paint in 3 hours. I think I might work on it at home a little more but I had to hurry along. The teacher painted it really fast, so there I am trying to mix the paint like her colors and by the time I do that she is almost done with her part so I am just splotching on paint as fast as I can but she is moving on to the next step and I am not done with the part she just showed……it is very stressful. I don’t think I will paint another picture there for a while.

Here it is though, I framed it because I used to live in Florida and I painted a lot of pictures and bought frames for them. I have a lot of frames. I might just repaint another one and take my time and do it better, not rushed. I may do it in oil. This is acrylic. I like oil because you can put more texture into painting.

My new painting.

Tonight I went to a painting class. It is offered by a new business called Canvas Junkies.

I saw it beside the Domino pizza place last month. I came home and looked it up online. They have a calendar that shows what they are going to paint and then you book the class online. They provide everything, the canvas, paint, an instructor who tells you how to paint the picture. There were a lot of people there to paint the painting. It was a lake picture of Lake Tahoe. I liked the picture.

You watch what she paints and you paint it. It is fun but you really have to pay attention to how she does it and try to recreate it. Every one does it different. It is hard to mix the paint to the exact same color she makes it, but in the end it does not matter because nobody will see her painting, just yours.

It gives me an ideal about how to paint one of mountains and rocks if I want to do one on my own. It was a fun evening out. I took a picture of the painting but the dark color does not show up as dark in a picture. I framed my painting because I had a frame to fit it. I hung it up. I am going to sign up for another picture in a couple of weeks.

Girl painted on t-shirt

I painted the t-shirt girl.I used red nail polish for her hair and put some glitter red puff paint on the hair too. I smeared the brown puff paint on the leg, but I will try to fix it when it dries. I used acrylic paint for the rest of it. It is hard to paint of material, it moves. But I like how it turned out. My husband wants me to paint a zombie on a t-shirt for my son. It is just a fun way to take a $6 shirt and make it custom.

I added some rhinestones to the flowers in her hand and on her belt. The corner birds are just something I added on pic-monkey when I resized the picture for here.

I bought a new t-shirt. It is white and was just plain. I decided to paint a picture on it. I got out my pencil and drew this girl. I saw a picture that had a girl standing by a big monster. I didn’t want to draw the monster, so I drew her holding a gun that shoots flowers. I used puff paints. I like how it gives added texture to the paint.
