Hello everyone! I'm so excited about my new blog for The Painted Cottage Studio and I just couldn't wait to say welcome. For those that don't know, I love to paint...big things and small things. Mostly (lately) very, very small things. I use tiny little brushes when I create my necklace pendants. Sometimes the brushes just aren't tiny enough!
Here's one of my hummingbirds that I painted...
I gave a hummingbird feeder to my husband for his birthday and now we're envisioning busy hummingbirds flocking to our yard daily! Okay, I'm envisioning this. But it's been so unbelievably hot here in Illinois (as it is in many areas of the country). When I added water to the birdbath this morning, the birds were actually fighting with each other to decide who would get in first!
Just the other day we returned from a family trip to England, Scotland and Amsterdam. The trip to England and Scotland was to visit my husband's family (his mother is from Scotland) but we took a quick two day side trip to Amsterdam. I thought we took waaay too many pictures but now that we're back I don't think we took nearly enough! I'll share a few with you in the next post. The one above was taken near Amsterdam while walking on our way to visit the shop that makes wooden shoes. (Wooden shoes, don't you love it!?)
(I would love to figure out a way to get that photo painted onto a small little pendant!)
