Here's another one for the books. 
It wasn't intentional but somehow it looks like the facade of a hillside or mountainside in the background. Guess I'll have to try that again :) Time for bed my lovelies ❤️❤️❤️

Started painting again

It's been a while and since my favorite muse (and best friend) is back in town, she made me paint lol. I'm glad she nudged me though because I started playing with colors again. I'm digging how the latest came out and when I held it up to a lamp I was pretty excited to see it looked even better with a backlight. 
Without being lit up⬆️

Looks pretty cool, right?? 
I think I'll name it October in the Twilight Forest

Some friends and I were sitting around a table talking about tiny turtles and I told them if I had the room I would have a big "turtlarium" or turtle aquarium filled with tiny land turtles. So I'm putting a new definition on the Internet for turtlarium, and not just the children's book. BAM that just happened ❤️❤️❤️

Paper flowers

 A friend of mine is a bride and recently had her bridal shower. I've heard of making momentos from the wrapping paper and bows from the shower and wanted to do something for her. Someone else snagged the bows before me but I ended up with a big bag full of wrapping paper and tissue. 
That's a lot of paper! 
I've put a little thought into it and I've decided to make her a bouquet of paper flowers. It's not complete yet and I have loads of paper to work with but here's what I have so far.
This an origami lily
Watson likes the hydrangeas (which I may make smaller flowers and bunch them to make a hydrangea head)
An origami tulip
And finally a tissue rose. I'm not sure if I want to combine ALL of these flowers in the same bouquet or make another with different varieties. I can't decide :) 
 I do know that my favorite is the tulip so far and I'm gonna make more of those.

Continuing with the different type of paintings I've been experimenting with, I give you the mermaid series 
 Together they form a series. 
I'm really pleased with how these came out.

Florida State Park Annual Pass Checklist

For those of us with an annual pass for Florida State Parks, finding a place to start is kind of a pain in the butt.  There are so many parks in Florida and trying to decipher which ones are county vs state is a bit annoying. So with the help of Wikipedia I compiled a printable checklist of State parks for anyone who wants it. Happy trails!!

It's been raining all day and of course I got the urge to paint. The first wave was around 3PM but I didn't do anything with it. When I had another wave of creative energy I decided I had to go with it. Why not? 
I can't decide if this last one is done yet. It seems so much darker and oddly shaped than my others. Less true to form
