I've been painting my shoes. Here's the first look at them.
I use a special paint made for leather. It's flexible and won't crack.
I'm having so much fun. I'm not sure what I will paint next. But certainly will do more flowers!
Currently painting these lovely lilacs. One of my favorite spring flowers that grows on bushes and shrubs. I love to make bouquets with them. I am currently working on an oil painting of this photo. I also recently finished a watercolor painting of lilacs here:
I often paint on cotton canvas but have a new 12 x 12 inch oil-primed linen canvas I will be using to paint these beauties. Sometimes the tulips tend to turn out on the warm-side on the oil-primed linen. The challenge for me will be to keep the cool/hot-pink color in these beauties.
I am just getting around to some pictures I took last summer and spring that I have wanted to put to paper. Here is speed painting of lilacs in blue vase. The lilacs bloom in May and sometimes April in Chicago. But in Idaho they don't bloom til end of May or June. It's really high elevation and farther north. That's why.
