In My Studio – March 5

Posted by lori . 8 Comments


This week, I finished up Juliette Crane’s How to Paint a Girl E-Course.  I thoroughly enjoyed this course.  I had never painted like this and was pleased with my results, thanks to Juliette’s excellent instruction.  Thank you, to everyone who gave me such positive feedback.  You were so encouraging, and I appreciate it.

I finished these girls…

I need to finish these girls…

These background need a girl…

At the last minute, I realized there was an extra Wednesday in February, so I came up with a spool knitted bookmark for my “Try This” post.  I like this and think it would be adorable with pom-poms on the ends.

I finished my 2012 Creative Color Challenge for February.  I’m making a yarn vase every month.  February’s color combination was Lavender & Green.  My plan was to add several flowers to my vase, but when I put the first one on, I loved the softness and simplicity of the single flower.

    Love the vase! How’s the pear-shaped…? (It really is quite descriptive of a number of female felines I know! I recommend you keep goddess in the phrase as well…)

    I agree, one flower on the vase is perfect! I really love all of your girls, too. You could save the canvases for owls, too…

    I love your finished girls! They have turned out great!

    I’ve been lurking for quite a while, but I had to pop out and tell you that your girl paintings are WONDERFUL. Thanks to you and my SIL Kat, I’m going to sign up for the how to paint an owl course. I can’t wait!

    I’m not fortunate enough to have a greyhound of my own (yet), but I do love looking at pictures of your sweet hounds. xoxoxoxox

  • Oh, your girls are BEAUTIFUL!! I especially love the one with the houses in the background… i love her little boots and the pattern in her dress! So adorable… they look like so much fun to do. Good for you. Hoping to see more of your precious little girls (even if the course is done!) 🙂 xoxo

    Rock ON! All your projects looks so wonderful, now, if I could only get off the computer and finish the commission I have…
