I love drawing these barns, but I had the hardest time trying to draw the tree of all things! I thought it would have been easier. If you study a tree from a distance in abstract the leaves are nothing but scratches and scribbles in lights and darks easy huh? Well, I certainly thought it was easy enough. As it turned out? Not so much. If I look at my drawing, I can see that it looks like a tree, it has its leaves and branches and a trunk growing from the ground. But it isn’t a “happy tree” and something I need to work on.
Well, that’s all the art, but I do have some other exciting news 🙂 We finally finished our bedroom YAY! (Well, almost) and I love it! It’s been about 14 years since we had new furniture, so it’s been a long time coming, and to celebrate, I even made pillows to match my quilt:) I sewed them, stuffed them THEN had to take out the stuffing, rip out the stiches and I had to remake them.
(The fabric wasn’t thick enough and so I had to make a lining) They are lumpy as can be, but they sit proudly at the head of the bed. I still need to buy some curtains and decorate the walls. When we are completely finished I will post some pictures.
Be Well and Happy!
