working on my new painting

The way the time is flying by is really getting to me, so today I decided I would paint no matter what! The gallery has been asking for another large canvas, and it has been standing on my easel since weeks. I just need to make time for it, and let all the other things go. I had the house to myself for the first time since 2 months, so I put on my favorite music and started painting. Ooh, I so enjoyed it. Although it was frustrating too at times. The less I paint, the more difficult it gets. It's almost as if I have to learn the same things over and over again. But after two hours I got the hang of it again. Sadly that was also about the time I had to stop to get the kids from school. Still, I managed to almost finish one corner of the canvas.


Yes, a dog! It was there so clearly, I just had to bring it out. This is how the whole canvas is looking now:


I also made a new wallpaper for my newsletter-subscribers. Here it is:

 If you want to download it, here's the link!


I managed to make only one face this week! So it's good that I'm not participating in the 29 faces challenge, I wouldn't have been able to do it and if there's one thing I hate it's starting a challenge and then having to quit ....


She will probably also become a lyricsgirl, but I need to find the right lyrics for her. Didn't have time for that yet ....

Okay, that's it! Except for my funnies of course :-D  Here they are!






hahahaaa! I love all of these, they make me laugh every single time :-D

I'm linking to Paint Party Friday again. Hop on over there for a quick look through some amazing art.

Thanks so much for your visit! Have a beautiful day and make sure you do something that feeds your soul this weekend! See you next week ♥ ♥ ♥

  5. I'm not sure but I wonder if Donald trump in hiding in your new canvas. I'm sure I can see his hair! :)LoVE the new canvas. I know what you mean about not painting for a while making it harder. I find the more I paint the more inspiration I have. It's not like it runs out through overuse it actually grows. I'm with you on the challenge. I hate giving up so would be reluctant to start something I couldn't complete.

  7. "The less I paint, the more difficult it gets."

    Oh, that's so true! My creativity and brain is still on holidays and starting something new is so difficult.

    I love the way that dog appeared into your beautiful painting, but I do hope Trump isn't going to appear there :D

  8. I love how this painting is progressing - that dog is so gorgeous - and I'm glad you're making time to paint when you can - it's so frustrating when life gets in the way of creativity but you're right you simply have to make the time or weeks can go by and you've not painted a thing.
    Your girl is beautiful - I love her hair!

  11. I am loving the new painting and can't wait to see what the finished product looks like ♥ Time has been escaping here too and things are piling up on me. I did decide to drop out of 29 faces. The stress of creating something every day was more than I can handle right now with everything else going on around here. Life is just too busy and I"m too old to keep up :)

  12. Oh, I am so happy to hear it is not just me that gets out of the flow from absence of creating!! So happy to see you back and I just LOVE the dog in this one- perfect!!
    Your girl is beautiful as well and i am sitting here going through songs in my head to see which I would put with her...
    as for the funnies- hahaaaahaaaahaaa Love the Cow, Love the Trump and money even more!!

  14. Ohhh the first thing I thought when I saw your painting is, "I don't think I have ever seen a dog in her art". LOL I love it!!! Especially the glow on his ear. Thank you Denise for the free download that is so generous of you. Your lyric girl is adorable. I love her hair. Have a great weekend.

  17. As always, I m loving your wonderful colors and enjoy seeing the dog. Working full time I find it incredibly difficult to keep the creative juices flowing. It is interesting to hear that others have similar experiences. Thanks for sharing and happy PPF

  19. I always say this... I love your process shadings. Hopefully you have more time now that school is back. I didn't start to paint until I was an empty nester. And now I can't stop. I have the same experience that you do when I don't paint for a while. But it comes back quickly. That might be why I try not to have breaks :)

  20. Great post! Your painting is beautiful! I love the different images in your painting. Your girls face is precious. I had to bail on 29 Faces too. I have to realize my body does not always want to cooperate with all the creations in my mind.
    Thank you for posting so much, it was fun going through all your images, oh and those funny ones too! Happy PPF and have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Rasz

  21. I love your new painting with the dog... I often wonder if your paintings are symbolic in some way! They would make great tarot cards...just because there is much interest in them!! Love your soon to be lyrical girl and funnies! Glad you had some lone time... I know how precious that can be!! Hope you have a creative week!

    Hugs Giggles

  26. Denthe, you are so wonderfully talented. It's so hard sometimes to carve blocks of time for painting - especially when we have young children - but I'm glad you found at least some time for your art. Your painting is fabulous & feels very peaceful to me. xx
