Quick! Run for the Paints!

While Macaulay went to her Bible Study I kept Baby Marc and just when I put him down for a nap I dashed for my paints! I had drawn this out the night before as we were watching TV and knew that when I got the chance I would paint it. So I knew that I had about an hour and a help give or take an hour!---so I painted this yellow pot of Hydrandeas. It looked rather hokey at first but after grunging it up a bit with some script stamps and background stamps---and some swipes of Distress Inks I called it finished. Whew...he was still asleep! Tomorrow I have a some doodle flowers that I worked on also while I was there but I could doodle easier without getting out everything. More tomorrow.

Thats what you have to do when there's a baby around,Run for the paints when you get a chance! This is beautiful Martha. I just painted some flowers in a vase too. Mine is not as beautiful as yours. I love these colors.

Love this Martha! I used to paint so many florals and I love the idea of stamping over like you did! What a cool way to incorporate mixed media with it!
BEAUTIFUL!

Lovely piece!!! Beautiful colours and texture! Did you paint this on canvas or some kind of paper? I know what it's like to try and get something done while the kids are occupied that's how I work all the time, right now I have about 3 different projects all drawn out sitting there waiting for me to paint them! I can't wait and hopefully today is the day! :0)

This looks great. Your added script and other stuff turned it into a very nice piece.
