Leaves of Change

 Hello!  Here is my newest artwork in my etsy shop.  It is called Leaves of Change and reflects my LOVE of this time of year!  It really is starting to feel like fall here in Ohio. 
Hope everyone is doing well!  I have been very busy with the school year and also with getting things ready for our newest addition coming in December!  The husband and I are so excited and can't believe in 3 months we will be parents!  Wow!  

Have a great rest of your weekend!

Grisaille or Grissaille painting

Hello!  Hope everyone had a lovely weekend:)  I had a wonderful relaxed one with the husband!  I just wanted to pop in and show you a little grisaille painting I am working on.  Grisaille or Grissaille...I have seen it spelled both ways!  A grisaille is basically a value underpainting that can be glazed over with color.  I love this technique and am currently having my painting classes do this for their first "real" project this year.  So here is the beginning of my grisaille:

Once I finish it I will post the end results:)  I am so excited to glaze color over it though!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Well I have been neglecting this blog haven't I?  It always seems to happen at the beginning of the school year!  I have been very busy with my classes and have been feeling incredibly exhausted!  The little girl has been sucking the life out of me I guess!

I hope you are doing well and enjoying the changing of the seasons.  I am so excited for fall...I just love cooler temperatures, honeycrisp apples (I bought some already!) and pumpkin spice lattes!  YUM!

I just wanted to stop in and say hello and that I have not disappeared off of the face of this earth!  I will be posting more soon, I just need to get myself organized! 

I will leave you with this wonderful, oldie but goodie song that I have loved for years.  I just found my Mazzy Star cd and was so excited to hear Fade Into You again!  Makes me think of my high school years:)

Well I am off to do some school work, talk to you soon!
