Life is busy, but have worked on a few projects...

Over the last few weeks, since summer began, my family and I have been doing a bit of traveling.  We spent the first week of our summer break in Michigan, visiting family and traveling to Mackinaw.  We came home for a few days and left for Dauphine Island to spend some time with my sister and her family.  We had a blast!  We arrived home on a Saturday, and I left out on Sunday to go to a week long Art Retreat Workshop.  It was work related but it was awesome, I always enjoy going to these retreats in the summer.

So, in between being away from home and having a few moments to spare, I have worked on a few things.  The painting I worked on while at the retreate. 

Thank you for taking a look at my blog...

 This is an oil painting, that I am very proud of.  I am not an oil painter, so this was my first attempt at painting a landscape since I was in college.  I think it turned out nicely.  There are a few changes I need to make, but for this one, I think I will leave it as it is.
 These butterflies are made from acetate.  Some are colored with Copics, and some just have paper attached to chipboard for the underlying color.  I had a lot of fun making these and look forward to experimenting with more butterflies.

These are bridal gift tags that I made.  I have never really made gift tags so wanted to give it a whirl.  I think they turned out nicely...

Thank you for visiting my blog!...Deanna
