Celebrate Day 232: "World Mosquito Day!"

Happy world mosquito day! Okay, this doesn't sound like a happy day. I hate mosquitoes! I live in Minnesota and they are often described as the state bird.  When I was a kid my bites used to swell up to the diameter of a baseball...NOT fun!  So, while I might paint you, mosquito, I do NOT celebrate you! Haha!

Celebrate Day 231: "World Honeybee Day!"

It's world honeybee day! Awesome...I am also a beekeeper so I love these guys! Here's a little texture I had fun creating with one of my HAS stencils, which has the comb shape.  I filled them in with some capped and uncapped honey, and added a few bees!

Celebrate Day 222: "Smores Day!"

Happy smores day! We eat a LOT of smores in the summer, being that we have two fire pits and whenever we're not home, we're camping! Sam was excited to do this one!

Celebrate Day 219: "Lighthouse Day!"

Happy lighthouse day! Today I decided to paint Split Rock Lighthouse, which sits perched up on the bluffs along lake Superior in my own home state of Minnesota! I've been there many times, and everyone's favorite sunset cake was named after that lake as well, "Superior Sunset!" ;-)

Happy ice cream sandwich day!  Last year (I think) I painted a regular rectangular ice cream sandwich, so for today I thought I'd do an ice cream cookie sandwich! :-)

Celebrate Day 213: "World Wide Web day!"

Happy world wide web day! For today's painting I played around with the idea of a high-tech spider building a web of circuits! The circuit board pattern was done using some Paradise brilliant silver, applied with a fingertip dauber, using the BAM 1220 stencil!  The glowing eyes are done with Liquid Bling in fire truck red.
