eyes shine forward

I've been working on three square canvas boards lately, along with other things. I've found myself doodling with paint at any given opportunity throughout the day. Instead of insisting on an hour, I'm stealing five minutes. It's amazing what one can squeeze in doing that. I'm a texture girl. I'm all about playing with the paint and creating many different textures...so this type of schedule suits that fiddling around I love to do. And it accommodates my little boy well too actually. He likes having lots of mommy time, and lots of alone time. It is so interesting to watch him grow. I posted one square one herealready. And this one below is the second to be done. This is the one with the pillowcase I mentioned in my previous Inspire Me Thursday "ATC" post. It was challenging to paint on this pillowcase in the respect that I had to restrain myself from painting over all of the loveliness of it which would be my usual mode of operation in playing with texture.










The prompt this week at IMT is "square"...go check them out for some more squares! :)

Miriam, this is wonderful. Looks like painting on tissue or napkins which is what I into at the moment. Thanks for your visit this morning. I will be discovering more of you soon.
Snatching 5 min. here and there works for me too.

Hi Miriam,
This square is just beautiful--I love the colors and textures. Stealing five minutes here and there is a great way to go--I have very little ones at home too.

Thank you so much for your very kind comment over at Artwords. Thank you for your wonderful contributions--folks like you made it such a special place.

Let's keep in touch.

Susan
