painting again


What a relief to be painting again!
I tricked myself into overcoming my inertia by joining the Mixed Media Monday challenge. Once I decided to join the challenge, I put "paint something for the challenge" on my new TODO app on my iphone with a due date of today. I love my TODO app! Somehow actually writing things down makes a big difference in my accountability level for getting them done. One of the many amazing things I learned from Kelly Rae's Flying Lessons ecourse!

So the theme for MMM this week is "something borrowed". And my mortgage paperwork was completed on the new house this week. I'm "borrowing" money from the bank to buy the house, so I decided to paint something about the house. This piece is 9.5" by 13", painted on a found canvas, the inside of an old book cover that was on it's way to the garbage.

Isn't it nice to think a defunct book cover has new life? And a beautiful new life at that, in honor or your homeowning adventure. Good luck!
