Valentine Paintings

Valentine acrylic paintings for the front door.
My sister, Carol, is visiting from Pennsylvania and we are doing crafts. Our big project was
to be the painting. I initially wanted to paint and owl. I thought that would be cute to have a big owl painting on the front door. Then my sister’s granddaughter Melissa did a really cute bright and colorful painting with fireworks and hearts and we decided to use her drawing as a jumping off board for our own paintings.
Here is Melissa’s drawing. Isn’t it beautiful and colorful?

These are fireworks in the picture. Even the round things that look like flowers are fireworks. Cool, huh?

Heart painting

I bought my granddaughter some acrylic paints for Christmas but she was less than thrilled about them so I was going to take them back but decided to keep them. These are very primary colors. Bright.
Here we are with a big mess ... starting the big heart in the middle.

We had lots of fun working with these bright acrylic  paints!

Hope you enjoy these pictures. We had so much fun painting them and they were pretty quick. Did we reach the level of Melissa’s drawing? I don’t think so.
I think I still want to paint an owl. Maybe I’ll paint the owl on canvass fabric.This is mine.

I think they’ll be seen from the road. Just maybe... ha ha
While my sister was visiting we fixed up Mom’s mantel in a Spring butterfly theme (will show that this week) and we worked on making some polymer clay medallions.
Thanks for viewing. See you all tomorrow.
