With a blog name like “Confessions of a Craft Addict,” you’d think there’d be a little more diversity in the crafting. Alas, no, as I’ve been in full-tilt sewing mode for the past several years. I do more than just sew, though, despite all evidence to the contrary.
My sister-in-law and her husband will celebrate their anniversary next week, which led to thoughts of our wedding present to them. Shortly after they eloped, they came to visit us and I snapped some pictures, including the one that inspired this painting. I had not touched a paintbrush in maybe 15 years but decided I had to paint this.
Sepia-toned watercolor seemed the best choice and I still think I was right on that. There are a few things I think I’d change but I’m pretty pleased with it, especially since I had not painted in such a long time.
