My Paintings

I was cleaning out a closet in the basement today and found something that totally made my day! I found a bunch of paintings that I painted when we lived in our last home. There were 6 of them, all unframed, and just waiting to be set free from their basement closet. I had put them there when we first moved into this house, and totally forgot about them until today! 

I used to paint all the time, but I've had a lot of other things to paint in the last couple years (ahem...an entire house), and I've totally neglected doing something I love. Finding these today totally ignited my spark again, and I've decided to get back in my painter's apron very soon. :)

Anyways, I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite ones.
I have no idea where I will put them, but hopefully I can find a place for them.
I hope you like them!

This one is my abstract one. (Is it weird that all my paintings are super colorful when I obviously am in love with neutral colors?! ha!)



and here's a flower one. I tend to either paint abstract art or flowers. 



and one more flower one.



Thanks for allowing me to share them! I may try to paint something new tomorrow....now that I'm re-inspired!

Also, for all my friends and readers who are stuck in bad weather, I'm thinking of you and hoping that you are staying warm!

  2. Lovely! My daughter loves to paint and I love her abstract painting of cherry blossoms.

    Can not wait to see where you place them in your home. :)

  8. LOVE them! Love the colors/love the subject matter! OMG you need to get these into your beautiful living room on the wall opposite the windows! What a statement they'd make there...Totally cool! Well actually they'd be great anywhere in your home. :-)

    I too am a neutrals gal but I would think these would be so much fun in your home. Go for it! Can't wait to see them up somewhere :-)

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

    1. ha! Alter ego! I love it! Thank you! I actually use both! The abstract was acrylic and the flowers were oil. I think I used a couple mediums with both, too. It was 5+ years ago, so my brain is a bit cloudy! And yes, a road trip is needed! We need a wine & paint date!! :)
