In an effort to keep this blog alive, I’m going to start posting on anything remotely creative I do. That way, I’m hoping this blog becomes less scary to me and I’ll be visited by the poetry muse again.
With that, I’ve finished it!
“Finished what?” you ask.
Katie’s birthday painting!
“But, Liz, wasn’t Katie’s birthday like 5 months ago?”
Yes. I’ve had some issues with it. But, I pressed forward and finished!
I gave it to her on Saturday, and of course, she was kind and gracious and said she loved it. (I’m taking her at her word even though she could just be sparing my feelings.)
Do you want to see some pictures?Well, here you go!
Now, for those of you with a birthday coming up, guess what you’ll be getting!!!
(I’ve planned a cruise through Asia in a year and a half, and I need to save all the money I can. So, you’re all getting a painting, or a birthday “High Five.” Take your pick!)
So when it’s your birthday, this is what I need you to tell me:
1. What colors do you want? Be specific, and if possible, give me an example. Don’t just say “blue” (unless you really don’t care).
2. What theme(s) or idea(s) would you like to be included? You know, maybe you want one with fairies, or trolls (if you’re Brett), or love, or freedom, or birds, or houses, or reading. Stuff like that.
Oh, and if you had a birthday already this year, and would like one, let me know!
And if you’re interested in what I used to make this painting, here is a list of some of the materials:
Paper (all different kinds)
Olden days writing and images
