I bought new watercolors, not the top of the line, but perhaps the 3rd or 4th best. I like them. They’re certainly brighter than what I had before. I made two portraits so far and I like what I painted, but I do have things I would change in both of them if they weren’t in watercolor and basically hard to modify.
Here it is! I’m happy and the customer is happy. It couldn’t have happened at a better time. On Tuesday I was feeling quite down after painting a disappointing dump truck and then on Thursday I got a commission and I was an artist again!

I think on Thursday and Friday my son got to watch about 7 hours of John Deere earth moving machines, Max and Ruby and The Wiggles while I just lied there all sick. But I felt better yesterday and got productive. I made a bonnet and got teased by family members that I was going to wear it. (I do love the regency bonnet era as they all know) It’s a baby bonnet. I also made another pair of baby shoes to match it (since everyone loved the shoes I took to the baby shower last week) and I painted some stranger who offered me some points on deviant art for his portrait. I’m quite cheap! Here are the photos:
You can buy the bonnet and shoes on Etsy here.
Or you can get your portrait made for $30 dollars plus shipping.
Just because my boy is crazy about construction vehicles, here’s a backhoe I painted tonight.

We celebrated my son’s birthday this past week-end and we put on a puppet show and we gave all the kids a puppet to take home. Here are some of the puppets we made.
The puppets were so popular that I decided to make another one and put it up for sale on Etsy. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/franciart
