a sunflower and love 23

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, February 7, 2016 @ 9:52 PM | , , , , ,

Hi! I hope you had a great weekend! I had a lot of fun hiking, biking, painting and paper crafting. It's week 3 in the online painting workshop that I'm currently taking with one of my favorite artists Dreama Tolle Perry. This week we are painting a sunflower along with carnations in a blue jar:
Here's my sample on a 9" x 12" canvas board. I'm going to give this one another go on the same size panel then jump to a "20 x 20" canvas to hang in my studio.



 I also created a Valentine's Day card featuring a variety of die cuts, flowers and pretty patterned papers from my stash:
I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:
For card sketch inspiration, I'm joining along with the MOJO Monday sketch challenge:
I was inspired by the hearts, shades of pretty pinks and kraft at the Card Concept challenge using a Clean and Layered style:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great week!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona this is stunning. Love your Sunflower painting and the vibrant colors. I know you are in a learning proces. But to me it looks fabulous and very proffessional.
Also your Valentine card is great. Love that you kept it simple. But it is so sweet and adorable. The scallop edge around the heart looks lovely.
Thank you for sharing your wonderful art. You ate such a talented artist creating the most awesome projects. Mixed media, paintings, cards, home decor vintage style... You manage it all.
Hugs to you from Monica... Spain

This is my favorite painting yet! Your strokes are getting more and more beautiful and intentional. The card is so pretty too! Meant to say I have been seeing some cute cards made with cupcake art as a focal point. You should totally scan your cupcake painting and use it as ephemera! Would make some lovely Valentines!!! ;0 Hugs, Autumn

Your painting is amazing Mona...I cannot believe that you have grown so much in your style in such a short time. It is obvious that you have a natural flair for art.
