A Day Of Handmade Art

I took a much needed break from working on our house remodel to spend a couple of days pursuing my passion of creating art. I was tired of the only paint spilled on my clothes being that of wall paint, instead of lovely acrylic paint dripping off of a canvas. As many of you know I run the Etsy shop The Little Grey Rabbit, and because this house is a time suck, I have severely neglected my small art corner of the world.

I put on some relaxing music (thank you Youtube for awesome playlists), and gathered all my art supplies. By the end of the two days, I finished these….

Big Sky Painting

Not yet listed in my shop as I am waiting on Aaron to help me take better photos of it. A landscape done in acrylic on a 16×20 canvas panel. Kind of difficult to see (hence the need for Aaron the professional photographer to help me) but I used a bit of yellow, orange and pink for a sunrise/sunset scene. I love serene images, where you can look at it and almost feel the breeze, hear the birds off in the distance, and smell the grass…. *sigh*     Okay, moving on….

Mini Shadowbox Art

I completed three miniature shadowboxes, all with tiny clay houses in them. As soon as I listed them in my shop, one of them sold, yay! (thankful because I need to buy more house paint lol!). Finally, as I have had requests lately for more mini canvas paintings, I created this set of a barn in all four seasons….

Now, it’s back to the grind this weekend. Back to fixing plumbing problems, crawling under the house to locate pipes, painting walls, and laying floorboards 🙂
