Morning Glory by Jonsama Morning Glory by Jonsama
Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well :aww:

My boyfriend Jonathon :) is a great artist, his love for art gives me inspiration. We truly appreciate all you wonderful comments.

Over my reading week I decided to do some traditional painting :) I bought this book holder from a crafts store last summer, and I wanted to give it some life by painting a summer scene on it. :) I really enjoy making crafts and decorating so I had alot of fun with this.

Laughter of Lilacs
Rainbows of roses
Songs of the robins
Lily of the valley borders
Sunshine to warm the heart
oh what joy this season does bring..

just look out your window... because today is going to be a beautiful day :)

God Bless,

Rebecca

There's something about the brush work here that I just love, it has this look to it, like what I've seen in many great paintings, it is amazing how simple looking brushwork done in a very careful and explicit way can make such fine detail. Painting on it must have been fun, and a little challenging, I think it's wonderful you've the ability to give your touch to things like this :)

Thank you so much. I love to put the paint on really thick and put lots of color in my work. I'm glad you like it. It was fun taking something plain and making it beautiful. I do a lot of this kind of work around home and for others. I enjoy it so much and i love the way it looks after :D

That's awesome, I've always wanted to do something like that too, but I only work in pencils for now, and I'm only starting to learn painting, in acrylics, but hopefully soon enough I'll be adding a little touch of myself to stuff for me and others as you do :)

The first thing I notice when I look at this is the colors. I love the colors and how bright everything is. Then there is the light coming through the gate, which kind of makes me feel like this is a secret place that no one knows about.

It's a very beautiful painting. Amazing work. :+favlove:
