I have random Pinks to share this week for Pink Saturday, Hosted by Miss Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.
I was ill all week, then felt better today so I went to my Mom's house as she is teaching me to oil paint ! Yippee !!! Today I just got a feel for the paint, next time I will try and concentrate on her instructions and not rush through to finish :) I am used to instant gratification with acrylics, so waiting WEEKS between layers is going to help me work on the Patience thing The Lord has been TRYING to teach me :) Hee hee !!
So, Ta Da !! Here is my first oil painting !! :)
I may go back and tweek it later, as now that the Turpentine High has worn off, I am thinking it is a bit simple and looks like it needs something.
Ok, on to the Pinkage. Pink vintage dolls that have been restored. The first is a 1950's 8" Pam Walker doll. These are more collectible if they are Ginny's or Muffy's, but Miss Pam is a sweetie pie too, Pedigree NOT needed in this household. :) I have about fifteen in different stages of restoration. To learn more about these dolls and other Hard Plastic Vintage dolls, this is a great link HERE.
Sweet Bridesmaid doll in Pink :)
Antique Pink mercury glass garland for my tree. I need to restring and mix these two strands together :)A few Pink Faux Cookie tags. I am always making odds and ends and including them in my packages when people buy things. These I made up for Valentine Sales :) ( Pardon the light, I took these at night, nothing beats daylight for pictures ! )
And lastly, look what came in the mail today ??? A Gift from a SWEET Girl in Idaho who KNOWS I positively DROOL over ANYthing that is painted by Sonie Ames !! Cant WAIT to frame these !!! Thank you sweet Chick !!!! :) :) :)
I need to take one of THESE to my Mom's house for Oil Paint class inspiration :)
