Droplet of Water by Amy Button.

Can I say it's by "Amy Button" if I copied it from a project on the internet? This is my first try at an art project. Well, at least an art project like this. The finished product will *hopefully* be a water color painting. This was done on a piece of scrap paper with a mechanical pencil, which really aren't made for drawing so I was excited that it turned out this well.

The painting I want to do is a "project of the month" from a website so it's not like this will be my own work but it's good practice. I'm sure you're thinking " I didn't know Amy painted". Well, I haven't but I've always wanted to. I just didn't know how to add depth and I thought that one day I'd take an art class. Then I thought I'd see what I could find on the internet and I was really surprised. I think that Chloe is the one that has really inspired me. She calls herself an artist and she loves to draw and paint so I thought it would be something we could do together. I also thought it would be cool if we could decorate our apartment with our own art work. It's an ambitious plan but Travis likes the idea a lot and has really been encouraging me. So we'll see how it goes. Wish me luck. Posted by Picasa

It looks good so far. It's a little hard to see in a photo but I'm sure it will be wonderful when it's done. I am working on something similar but it involves the camera instead of actual drawing. Surely it's cheaper to decorate with our own masterpieces than the storebought stuff. It makes for good conversation too. I'll have to post some of my art as well.

Well, I guess I'm starting to settle into this stay at home mom thing. I've always wanted to do creative things but I've always been busy at school and then work. So I'm happy that I get to try this stuff out.

I'm really excited about all of it though. So much so that I had trouble sleeping last night.

OK, Mary, what I meant to type was...

I think that when you use your own art it is more meaningful than something you bought. And I would love to see some of your art.

I've been so behind on my blog reading since our computer was in for repairs three times (forgive me, Mary!).....but anyway, I'm (1) so thankful everyone is well now! (2) Impressed that Amy is painting and re-covering sofas and scrapbooking and has all these projects going! Who says being at home is boring?
Go girl!
