new painting project

I’m working on a new painting project.

Not that I can paint, but I can do the painting-by-numbers style 🙂

It’s a variation on this painting which I made some time ago:

It’s a silhouette of our children, I think the (original) photo was taken about 5 years ago.

I changed the photo to a two-tone digital drawing, and transfered that to a canvas. Here you can read more about this painting.

So now I’m working on a similar project, but this time it’s going to be a landscape, and the painting will be in 11 colors.

Here you can see a work-in-progress photo:

Lots of figures to fill with paint 🙂

Curious how it’s going to turn out?!

Actually, so am I.

I will post pictures when it’s done, now first, time to paint!

Making soap at Davina’s party

Last monday was a great day for Davina: It was time for her birthday party!

She and her mom invited me to make soaps with her and four of her friends.

It was so much fun!

All ladies went home with a bag full of little soaps.

Here you can see some pictures of the party:

At first, some explanation about the soap, the scents and coloring, and the various soap molds.

And then: to work! Melting the soap, adding scent and color of choice, and pour the soap into the molds!

The hardest part is the waiting fot the soap to set…

unfortunately I forgot to make a picture of the result. Actually, I forgot to make pictures all together, luckily Davina’s mom made these photo’s you see here (thanks!!)

During the wait for the soaps to harden the girls decorated labels for their soap bag, and chose a gift from the grabbag.

This party was awesome!
