She Had Stars In Her Pocket Acrylic Painting
Yesterday I painted all day, after a long weekend reprieve. The acrylic painting was the opposite of this. I am not sure if I am done and I haven't been frustrated with a painting lately but this one was having me going there. I redid the face more than three times, finally I went to pick Sammie up from school and showed her the latest face and said what do you think. She liked her, ok with all frustration I thought to myself this is the face she will have. That way I can move on to another acrylic painting or work on the background some more. Honestly thanks for listening. I wish I had an image to show you but I have to purchase another memory card and haven't as of yet. Hopefully this weekend.

For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream ~ Vincent Van Gogh
Supplies to get you started:
I have used One Stroke brushes and loved them. This is the first time I have seen them in a set. I have used canvas board for practicing and its a great way to start along with using journal or mixed media books. Sign up for my newsletter for more tips~
