Wedding Inspiration

Hello, friends! I hope this finds you well. I've been very neglectful of this blog of mine. (Sigh) Life is busy. 

I haven't been idle though. Right now I'm working on some decor for my brother's wedding this fall. Of course the bride and I have been pinning away! (Where was pinterest when I got married?!) Here's some of what we have in mind. 








A little rustic. A little sparkle. A whole lot of pretty! It's a big wedding too, so I've got my work cut out for me. It's a pretty fun "job" though and a nice diversion from diapers and the relentless armies of weeds that threaten to overthrow my garden (maybe that's a little dramatic). Hopefully I can give you some updates along the way. 

XO,

-Sarah

Weekend Vibe

Just popping in to say hi and how are you? I want to wish you a lovely weekend, filled with coffee and books and time with the ones you love. I'm hoping for those things myself plus a little yard work on the side.

Painting No. 30

It's the 30th of April and I'm done this daily painting thing. Whippee! Happy, happy. 

Would you believe this is the 3rd painting I did today? I was trying something new and it just didn't work. I had this feeling like the final painting had to earth shattering, but I ended up doing something that I've done before. It's still pretty though. AND best of all, I don't have to paint tomorrow unless I want to. Yay. Thank you a million times over for making this a successful endeavor. I can't wait to hand over the proceeds to my friend.

Painting No. 29

I'm back with more earthy, organic goodness for today. The colours are a little different from yesterday's painting - perhaps more subtle - and the shapes have obviously evolved into a varied composition.

Price: $30

Just one more painting to go, friends. Yay!

Painting No. 28

Here's something completely different for today. My focus was organic shapes in earthy tones. I love how the colours overlap and bleed into one another creating some wonderful depth and interest. 



#28 "Au Naturel" (Watercolour on Paper, 5X7) 







Price: $30

My kids are wearing flip flops and I'm about to fire up the BBQ! This calls for a happy dance.

Painting No. 26

I'm getting SO close to being done. Whoo! And I tried something new for today - a close up of just one flower in bloom. It worked out pretty well. There are parts I'm not so happy with but that's how it goes. Practice. Learn. Repeat.



#26 "Something New" (Acrylic on Canvas, 5X5)

Painting No. 25

Hello, hello! I went back to some acrylic for today. A bright bunch of flowers defies what's happening outside my window at the moment - we're in the middle of a snowstorm which is only slightly depressing. Anyway, I hope these blooms can bring some cheer to someone. 




#25 "Bright Bunch" (Acrylic on Canvas, 5X5)

Painting No. 24

It's Friday! Not that that means much to this stay at home mom, but you know... 

I'm back with more watercolour prettiness today. I just love all the variations you can get with watercolour; they're more difficult to control but that makes for some lovely unplanned "accidents" at times. 


#24 "Cluster" (Watercolour on Paper, 5X7)







Price: SOLD

I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
