Not quite what you are expecting . . .

But tomorrow it will be the chocolate brown with the dots! Most of you don't know, but I try to work on 2 paintings at all times. For one reason, it gives me something to paint while the other one is drying! It also keeps me fresh with each canvas. I don't get burned out with a pattern if I'm going back and forth. You try staring at the same thing for hours on end - you get sick of looking at it!


Last night before bed, I drank a massive cup of coffee trying to get just a couple of hours in - I swear I only meant to work for a couple of hours! But I got so caught up in this next painting. It was one that I really didn't have to put down for any dry time. Which makes for a speedy result! And who doesn't like instant gratification? I pictured what I wanted it to look like and boom - at 4:16 in the morning - there it was!


I'm actually in the process of creating another painting that matches this Pottery Barn Kids bedding {called the Penelope} so I had the colors already matched up! I know in a few of the bedding pictures the fabric looks muted - it's not. I bought a piece to insure perfect match and it is bright in color!


The crazy part - is the other painting I'm working on is the same NAME!!! How funny is that?!


And yes, it's the same font from yesterday! I do really like it! A lot! I hope you all do to! Because you are going to be seeing it quite a bit!!!!!! {Just getting that out there now!}


These birds really crack me up - and this is definitely my favorite PBK bedding for this season!


And just in case you didn't read the comments from my last post . . . Kelly is going to bump her kid room tour till later! Whoo hoo! Did I sound pathetic in that last post or what!? Now, I really have to get that room DONE! Time crunch!!!! But for all those wondering - the beds are finished! Completely! Now, we just have to beg our neighbor to come over and help move them up stairs!

Okay - I've got a painting I have to finish!

When I was pregnant with Ella, the Penelope bedding was DEFINITELY my fave--but a bit too costly. I am sure that folks that want it now can probably find some good Ebay deals on it. I just love the little birdies! GREAT paintings!
