Something different!

I have plenty of challenges on my list to keep me busy thru the weekend but for some reason just don't want to be scrappy I did something I haven't done in a LOOOONNNNG time! I painted! I have had this blank canvas sitting in the garage for years...thinking, wondering, imagining what I would paint on it, or even if I would be the one to paint it...maybe one of the kids would one day.  So I walked out tonight, grabbed it, torn the plastic off it and started painting. I think the trying to figure out shading etc. with the copics has inspired me to learn more about how colors mix and blend, how they like to play together! So this was my first attempt, it's not exactly what I pictured in my mind, but is art ever?

Hope you enjoy my "something different"
Blank...ready to go! ;)

Then I started...but soon realized the way I was doing it the paint was going to dry too quick and so I needed to start at one end and mix as they were wet.
I think I got the hang of it!
Finished product!

I'm happy with I said not exactly what I imagined...but then again when is anything what we imagine ;)

Thanks for stopping to scrap something! xo
