Today was the first day that I was able to experience a bit of pure quiet. Both the kids were in school for 3.5 hours of Q-U-I-E-T. So strange, so weird and oh so lovely.  I had enough time to pull out the paint and start this painting.  Yesterday and today were a half days for the big guy, but the little guy will continue with 1/2 days until January.

I had some time this afternoon to finish my painting for the Creative Color Challenge.  I dove right into the soothing, lush and dreamy color of turquoise.  I decided to paint a mermaid and silly me didn’t actually read the new twist on the challenge. We were allowed turquoise, white and black, but also a metallic: silver, gold, bronze or copper.  I would have totally added gold to the crown had I known this, but now my paints are packed up and it’s almost dinner time. Ah, well. Just try to imagine a gold crown.

    Beautiful drawing. Amazing what quiet time can do. Tomorrow my baby girl starts preschool. I look forward to a little quiet time myself.

  4. I love the painting. My sister loves paintings of mermaids! Will you be selling it?
