I paint or craft, of course I've left it late so only a couple will be getting a 'real painted' gift.
* I also purchase from other artists and crafters. No 'big store' stuff. I can, so I do.
I actually have a great idea for another gift - I won't make it for Christmas - I'll make it and gift it during the year - Just because I love the person I am thinking of. She will love it too.
Oh My Gosh! Did I have fun with Saw 12!
My moms boyfriend Hugh gave me 'two saws' at thanksgiving, the hand saw kind!
What fun! He said - "maybe I'll get one back" with a big grin. I like Hugh!
He is interesting, every now and then he or I mention stuff that - no one else ever seems to know... lol Like Oblio and Arrow. Hugh knew.
He bought me great books last christmas - one about the gentleman responsible for the dictionary.. should technically, be called the Dicktionary.. hee hee hee.
Anyhow, he loves elephants and I NEEDED to paint so I did. Talk about meditation.
I started at 6 and finished at 8 with a few breaks here and there.
I looked at elephants on the computer - but I didn't have anything in front of me when I painted, (no ink) this elephant is mostly imagination. I thought of elephants as I painted.
Today, I'm inspired to do a drawing- probably won't get it done until after the holidays about another elephant " I am not a body, I am free! I am as God created me!" is the title.
Have a peek at Hugh's Elephant - Saw 12! He promised me he would not peek at my blog.
I can't wait to paint the other for our own home.
back to making more Christmas gifts...
