New folk art princess

hi friends. Hope your week has been going well. It was so nice to wake up to a sunny day, I even managed to get some color!  Thought I'd show my latest painting. After my last post, I sat down and finished this little princess. The girl was drawn out weeks ago,and since I wasn't too crazy about the drawing, I let it sit. Finally a couple of days ago, I thought I'd start painting and see what happens. So she is now a little blonde girl, and the teddy she was originally holding turned into a kitty, lol! She is  listed in my Etsy shop. (Sold)

Can I just say that bloggers are the nicest people? You are all so sweet and supportive. I'm always struck by how close the blogging community is. This is from reading the comments on my blog, as well as other blogs. People truly are ready to lend support when they can, and it helps us all grow.  Thank goodness for this wonderful forum for us to share our lives and our art.

thanks for reading!

She is quite charming. How fun that things change as color is added. I am often amazed when I look at a sketch and then how it evolves with color and texture.

I so agree, the blogging community is a treasure! Enjoy your sunshine, we have it too.

Yay for finishing her! Sometimes you just gotta start to overcome the blahs...she is just precious!

I love that she is flying high....but also, if you stand her up the other way, she is reaching for the stars :)
