Paint Party Friday year two week five " Letting Go"

Once again Paint Party Friday where you too can peak in on a wonderful variety of artists blogs to see what they have accomplished this week!

                                                                    "Letting Go"

" Letting go" is my newest painting. I hesitate to add more color to this canvas, which was originally just a back ground. Instead I'd like to find a nice duvet and wall color to match, for a bedroom makeover! It's been a grueling decision, and the kids keep reminding me I need to pick a color. I have taken jaunts through pinterest and all over the net for inspiration. Who knew I'd be my own inspiration!  

I've used vibrant color in all my homes long before it was fashionable, but the dark eggplant in my bedroom has grown tiresome and needs to change!! Still more to ponder, the rug, a furniture color, and hunting down a duvet.  You may come back to find my canvas completely painted over. For now I like it as is but I'm  known to change my mind on a whim!!   Are you brave when you decorate?

                                           A doodle done in front of the boob tube!
 Easter has always been a time of renewal for me so I've  been working on some personal changes. I bravely decided to buy Kelly Raes " Flying Lessons, The whole Shabang" e-book on her one day sale! Had I not been in a state of renewal I could have passed on  this amazing deal. Fortunately I leaped in and bought it. 

At first I wrestled with spending the money. My internal "Negative Nelly" tried to dissuade me with "Who do you think you are, you won't use this information." "You're not a good enough artist to have anything become of your art." I only had a few hours to shush that Nelly. I  knew if Kelly Rae taught a class in my city I'd purchase it in a heartbeat! So I couldn't pass on  this one time opportunity. After I made up my mind to buy it, I told my daughter and son-in-law, who  were so supportive, encouraging me to follow my dreams!!

 Within the first three pages of reading  I was overwhelmed with emotion. It's written as though speaking directly to me at this perfect moment in my life! Fifty pages in, I am enthralled with all the links and information she shares! I just can't wait to read more of Kelly's inspirational words then apply them to my life!! You can see some of Kelly's lovely home products in the photos I took at a local nursery here!

That's a great color to have in your bedroom. :) Beautiful! I've taken Kelly's first class and it was great. Enjoy the e-book. :)

Lovely colours in your very interesting painting. It would be a good design for fabric. When I decorate I like pale colours...shades of white. That way I feel the rooms look bigger:)

I love your painting and all of your bright colors. The colors I use in my house are also bright at times. I know they are different than most of the homes I go to but I love them.
I have followed Kelly Rae for several years and it has been so much fun to watch her business grow. I have a feeling that could happen to you. I love your blog and will be following along rooting for you!

Good for you for going ahead with your e-book purchase. Sometimes we just have to treat ourselves with something that makes us happy.

Rhonda said...

Awesome colors. I could see it in textiles. You can join Zazzle and make your own pillows to match from your artwork. Awesome doodle. Happy PPF!

Carol said...

The painting is awesome and I would love a room done in those colors.

Christine said...

nice abstract and a wonderful doodle!

the guilty money voice can be a real drag. I've gotten better at dealing with it - the simplest way is to call my husband and have him tell me to go ahead.

Love that painting! My best decorating decision so far was to buy a sari off ebay for under $20 and hang it on our dining room wall. It isn't framed or anything - I just used little nails and tiny binder clips. I love it.

Anne said...

Beautiful painting and I love that you treated yourself and rightly so. I believe we are drawn to books, people and experiences for a reason - never hesitate!

Thanks for your sweet words on my painting. Have a happy weekend,
