painting BIG, thinking small

This was my latest assignment in Carla Sonheim’s Year of the Spark class.

It’s a BIG painting in that it measures 11x17. Thinking small refers to thinking/painting as your inner child.

I painted a picture of me. My birthday is in May. Every year on my birthday, I would get a new swimsuit for summer. We always called it my Birthday Suit!!

I still don’t know if I like acrylics. They never work the way I want them to. I think it’s the brushes I’m using.

Yeah, I’m going to blame the brushes!


  1. I love it kitty, wether you do or not :)
    That's pure summer :)
    And I like your birthday suit! :D

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Oh I love that pretty, cute, little girl! And I love the color gradient too! I know what you mean. Acrylics are always a challenge to me as well but I love the size you have choosen and the outcome looks really beautiful!

  3. Of course it's the brushes! (birthday suit! LOL)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
You just made my day!!
