Quiet night in the art room



Spending a quiet evening in the art room with my little one. Working on some portraits while she works on ponies. One of us might take some inspiration from some 15th century panel paintings at some point 😉

I’ve been listening to the Fleet Foxes station on Pandora all evening, I like it. I like when dreamy old timeyness mixes with a little modern. Trying to do that with paint.
Its so hot. So, so hot outside. Maybe, if I paint enough autumn paintings, autumn will come. Worth a try, I guess? Tomorrow is our ‘cool down’ for the week at 92*. Hope to get out and do something. Its hard to hide inside all day with a bored 4 year old. We’ve watched a lot of Ghost Busters 😉
Back to painting. Hope all is well with you~

  4. Sweet pictures Heather. I will create the Fleet Foxes station on Pandora. My favorite right now is Foster the People. Loving it and all the music Pandora plays that is similar. It was hot here today but nothing like what you're experiencing. Go Ghost Busters!

  6. I actually think your colour palette is very close to 15th century Bohemian panel paintings. Very rich jewel tones. Lovely illustrations. Glad I found your blog!

  10. Heather, I did the same thing for a long time. I was always saying \”clear off a space so you can eat\” lol….then I decided to take over a whole room! Of course, no matter what, you always need more space 😉
