This month the Girls Just Wanna Paint challenge was to paint a treasured object. I've kind of trying to adopt a Buddhist attitude, of detachment, and not letting material things mean too much to me, but this little pitcher was my mom's and I think was actually a creamer. My son, knowing how I love pussy willows, actually GREW some this year, and put them in a floral arrangement he gave me on my recent birthday. Well the flowers are gone, but the pussy willows remain.
SO. On to the fun part here. Today, being behind the 8 Ball with my painting schedule, I packed up my paints and drove to Sally Dean's studio where we decided we would simply get in her studio and CRANK out this month's Challenge. We did it, then went looking at some awesome pottery and glasswork in nearby Norwell (behind Trattoria San Pietro). So... here is mine. Please check out the rest of the GJWP Challenge paintings HERE, and Sally's blog HERE.
"Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends... " yes I do, and I want to say THANKS to Sally for a great art date day!
