I decided this morning to go grocery shopping at one of the actual grocery stores rather than WalMart as usual. That didn’t really stick. Once I got into the store and saw the limited selection of products and the prices on what they did have, I decided to check out with the handful of items I had found that were decent deals, then headed off to trusty ol’ WalMart to get everything else on my list.
I made a pit stop in the art supply aisle, not at all expecting to find what I wanted. I was wrong – they did indeed have exactly what I wanted – a nice, simple set of acrylic paints. I debated for several minutes whether or not to get it. If you have been here a while you probably already know this post is happening because I successfully talked myself into the purchase.
Once I got home and had taken the dogs out and had all the groceries put away, I gathered my supplies and got to work on a painting. My inspiration for this came from two sources: Marta’s previously shared YouTube (Maremi SmallArt) as well as a mug and plate set I have.
First, here is Marta’s video that was the initial inspiration:
The plate and mug set I have that was additional inspiration:
And of course, the finished painting:
As usual, it is far from perfect but I like it and I had fun creating it, which is the whole point.
Rascal is making a fuss wanting outside, so I’m off. I hope y’all have had a nice weekend.
Until next time. xoxo
