Painting [Cherry Blossoms]

I haven't had a lot of time to work on crafts over the last week but I did manage to do a little painting. I'm not sure that I am done with this one or not, but here's what it looks like so far! I feel like I need something on the top, but I'm not feeling inspired right now. Perhaps I will come back to it later. I like the color combination of aqua and red though.

Somewhat Abstract

So I had this huge tube of metallic silver paint and wondered how it would look as a background color. I slapped some on, then grabbed some eggplant color and it sort of grew organically from there. I love this color combination.

Etsy Favorites Promotion #6: AdoptanAlien

This is where science fiction meets... plushies! I love these collectible little critters! Their big eyes just say "zomg, aren't I cute?" and the variety of colors means you could be sure to find one that would look right at home at your place. There are so many unique aliens with different personalities and names, some with three eyes, two heads, or even with their tongue hanging out.

They come from all over the Universe and even distant Galaxies. They are all strange and one of a kind. But, most importantly, they are all looking for a good home! These little Aliens are all orphans and are up for Adoption at the Adopt an Alien Agency. For a small adoption fee you can bring one of these sweet little aliens into your home. Adopt your Alien Today!

Painting the Spring

I ran out of mounted canvases so this was painted using acryllics on canvas paper. Mary Blair's artwork served as inspiration (it was an easy transition from Eyvind Earle since both painted Disney animation concept art). I really like the combination of orange and aqua blue, so after starting with an aqua-colored background I decided that had to be sky, so why not have a blossoming orange tree? I also felt that the clouds in the sky were a little lonely without a few white doves frolicking in the breeze.
