In the Art Studio: Warrioress, Wood Mounted Prints, & #1,000

{in progress}

Here is my current work-in-progress.  Well, that's not quite accurate -- I have a bunch of pieces that need to be finished, but this one is the most active (and most recent).  I think she's a warrioress.

New wood mounted prints are up in my art shop.  They turned out beautifully.  The photos absolutely do not do them justice -- I'm going to try retaking those photos, but I am so pleased with how these affordable, ready-to-hang prints look.  You can find them here

Also, this is my one thousandth post.  I started blogging five years ago as a food blogger, and had no idea what I was doing or how many incredible people I would meet through blogging.  I am so grateful for all of the people that blogging has brought into my life.  That means you!  Thank you!

Right now our home feels very peaceful.  I started off the morning by staying in bed with some feelings, and then followed that up with some sweet, silent painting.  The sky outside is overcast and it might storm today.  I hope it does.  I hope it's this quiet and lovely all weekend.

What are you up to this weekend, creatively or otherwise?

  1. Beautiful pieces, Beth! Love that green background! Congrats on your 1000th post... that is awesome!

  2. Love the new work! Beautiful!!! SO glad you are having some peaceful moment my friend.

  3. I'm a new visitor from AIB - I haven't participated there in awhile so I'm sure there will be lots of new sites to visit and fall in love with. Love your ladies...beautiful work.

  4. Love as usual. And WOW congrats on 1000, that is awesome!!

  5. Beth - just love that work in progress - the textures are so amazing. Just this week, as I was praying for sweet tweener, God spoke to me that she was a "Warrior Woman" and encouraged me to tell her that! Wow, she feels so loved by God right now, as she KNEW she was feeling that warrior spirit - now to help her find what all that means for her...


  6. Your work is beautiful as usual! What did you use to make flower-ish texture on the first piece pictures? It's so pretty!

    I'm on post 709 right now. 1,000 is a big milestone!

    We had the nicest rain here yesterday and got to fall asleep to the sound of gentle thunder and thudding raindrops. Hopefully you got some too--I know we're not *too* far away. :D

    1. Thanks, Christina! The flower-ish texture is some cool paper that was already like that -- I just painted over it, and will paint a few more times probably.

      That rain and thunder sound lovely!! :)

  7. Oh, love the green eyes!!! Perfect!

  8. They're both beautiful but I especially love your warrioress.
