My husband gave me a easel as an early Christmas present.
It has been such a lifesaver! I had forgotten how much I loved to paint!
I will not forsake my Prismacolor pens, but wow...splashing paint on a canvas is great "mommy therapy" for me. The best part is that my oldest is completely into it...we fight for easel time. ")
I am currently working on a series that goes with the poem.. "All things bright and beautiful...all creatures great and small..."
There are some fantastic verses to it that I had never heard...great for illustrating.
Here is a photo of my first brainstorm...not quite finished yet.
I need to get a bigger canvas to fit all the words in . . . working on an 16x16 right now.
