The Daydream

She stares out into the horizon, small thoughts and sweet little memories fluttering about her head...
This is my new painting, "The Daydream." This one is a little different from what I have been doing lately. I was starting to feel a tiny bit bored and wanted to see if I could change things up a bit. I love that feeling when you get so excited about and so lost in a painting that you forget that you are starving and need to eat lunch (which takes a lot for me, believe me! :) So I really enjoyed doing this. I painted her in acrylics, then added some paper butterflies and hearts, and drew on some embellishments with colored pencil. Unfortunately the pictures came out a little blue-looking, the background is actually a lighter aqua green.

I have also been enjoying these beautiful pink tulips which my very sweet boyfriend brought home for me on Saturday. They have been blooming open a little bit more each day. Gorgeous!

Of course my little Rosie girl had to check them out, and she decided that they smell quite nice :)
I hope that you are having a lovely day, I will see you soon!
