I’ve been sitting here all morning following ABCNEWS as they cover the terrorist attacks in France. My heart goes out to France and I’m sending prayers for everyone’s safety.
This photo popped up on my Tumblr feed and it fits what’s going on in the world perfectly. We always laugh at pageant girls when they reply “world peace”, but it’s actually what this world needs more than anything.
I’ll try to move forward to more positive things and blog about what I normally blog about. Yesterday afternoon, I found my Jason’s Deli leftovers hiding in the fridge from last Saturday. Gross? Nah! I took out the lettuce and bean salads and made myself a meal! It was actually pretty darn good!
I chose two large canvases to work with and used acrylic paints for my medium. I only used four colors for the picture: white, black, blue, and purple. I used those four colors to blend and make new ones.
Here is the final. I call it “midnight moon”:)

I am in LOVE with this painting! I would buy it in a heart beat to
hang in above my couch in my apartment if you chose to paint & sell another one.
I have been looking for something to hang above my couch & something like this would look amazing!!!

(And thanks for your kind words about what is happening these days in France, we are going through a hard time right now)

Wow, not only do you have a talent in photography but allso in visual arts. I admire your right brain, haha.
I like all your art work. U could definitely make some mula off of it!
You could totally incorporate your artwork into livashore. Calenders, diaries,stationary, or even just prints of your artwork. Its very sell-able and also very much stylized to reflect YOU, which is what we all love about this blog!
I love the painting-the sky is gorgeous!

Your paintings are gorgeous! I wish I had half your talent!
Where did you learn to paint?? You’re so good! I like painting too but I’m still getting the grips of everything.

Taralynn, you could (and really should if you’d enjoy it) sell your paintings. You are very good. Two of my best friends (both your age) are artists and they are wonderful! Your stuff is very similar and I know people would buy it 🙂
This looks like a great afternoon, and that is the most perfect birthday present. What a thoughtful thing to do 🙂
