Thought I'd share some favorite things of mine:)
Favorite Fall Painting:
I love this painting of Heide Presse's "Oliver's Porch". Heide paints with watercolor, casein and oils. After seeing her works I bought casein paints, I didn't have much success with them, I may have to give it another go sometime.
It was love at first sight with Daniel Smith's quinacridone paints. Couldn't live with out them.
I love candles and this is what I'm burning this month. Smells so good!
Favorite Fall Candy
I hate to admit this but our family has already been through 2 bags of candy corn and it's not even October yet.
Favorite Artsy Flick
Watched this documentary while painting this month. It's fascinating. I was thrilled when I found out that the Arkansas Art's Center just had the opening for an exhibit "50 for Arkansas: the Dorothy and Herbert Vogel Collection." The couple's gift to Arkansas is part of the Vogels' "50X50" donation of 50 works to all 50 states, to institutions of their choice, making the Arts Center lucky as well. The remainder of the Vogel collection went to the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Can't wait to see it.
Favorite Project Around the House
I decided to spruce up the front door of our house. Left is the before picture it was pretty bland so I decided to paint it, Right shows the after. We have a lot of stone work on our house so I wanted to pull some of that color for the door. I was thrilled to find the perfect shade of paint in the Oops section at Home Depot for $2. Pretty great improvement , money well spent:)
