This one’s for the birds

Birdhouse Painting - FREE

Birdhouse Painting - FREE

OK, I give up on the birdhouse painting. It’s just too cartoony for me. I think it would have been a more charming/sweeter painting if the size were smaller. Maybe like a little 5×7. Instead, it’s 11×14 and frankly, just not working out. This is a bad start to my new art chapter, but, hey, you win some you lose some. Right?

With that said, anyone want a FREE painting? Maybe someone else will appreciate more than me. If you’re interested, leave a comment or shoot me an email. And if I don’t hear from anyone, then I’ll take it that everyone agrees with me and I’ll file this one away with a few other painting tragedies.

From birds back to dogs, here’s my next subject: My dog (and yes, this is the little terror that destroyed my art portfolio noted in a previous post. The only reason why I keep her is because she’s so cute.)

Day 1: Um…what do I write?

Posted in Uncategorized on January 9, 2009 by Cherie

Alright, I’ll admit that I’m not quite ready for this blogging thing. But I can’t just have nothing up here on Day 1, right? 


I have to say this: I’m pretty excited. This whole thing is pretty crazy to me. Why am I blogging? Well, as I told my friend tonight, it’ll help keep me motivated and in check with my goals this year. So what do I have to lose? I do have a few painting ideas swirling around in my head and I can’t wait to get started on them. 

Stay tuned. I shall return. Promise.
