Painting inside whilst its wet and windy outside

 Really like layering papers then painting over them at the moment.  Found a lovely site called Artists In Blogland..the challenge for this month is to use the above quote "good friends are like quilts they age with you yet never lose their warmth".
Well its a cold wet very windy day so wanted to capture this on the above landscape. This is for the One Little House community book club challenge which was to do a very textured painting in the style of Mary Beth Shaw.

Lorraine,
Just discovered your blog through Corrine. I LOVE your art. Watched the video "some of my art" ~ you've inspired me to get busy and create.

I love the texture you have created. And you certainly captured the weather :) We had that same thing here in the Midwest.

I have been itching to do some painting over text pages in my journal...but so far this year, I've not made the time.
You have inspired me to get going already! Thank you. I love both paintings too, but the first one is brilliant.


Stop by to enter my giveaway, if you haven't already...there's one day left.

Ciao Bella

Wow, two beautiful pieces of work - the top one is so vibrant - the quilted pattern on the dress is beautiful - I love the background too. Your landscape is stunning and very atmospheric. Beautiful.
