4 Paintings and Some Mail...

Yesterday I spent almost the entire day either painting or watching Mystele's painting video. I had some frustrations and some fun and I'm happy with what I did.

But first of all I have something else to show you. I was in a swap with Lee and TJ. I already showed you the art piece Lee did for me. Now here is what TJ sent...


She did some stitching on the square heart piece but I'm not sure it shows up in this photo. I love love love the background technique she used on these and the colors are beautiful. The ATC is a sample of some German tape...how cool is that! Thank you, TJ...I hope the art pieces I sent will arrive soon. I'll show those later.
************************************************
I did some extra touches on this painting...


I added the halo and the words so now I think it's finished.

I also re-worked this one a little bit 
but now her forehead looks weird...


It's too dark on one side or the other side is too light! 
Either way I need to fix it.

Here's another one I was working on...


She needs some more work, too.

And finally here's one I did 
on one of the dollar store wood plaques I bought recently...


Now I hope I can make more improvements today. 
I plan on another day of painting.
