a vase of pink roses 10

Mona Pendleton | Monday, May 2, 2016 @ 10:33 PM | , ,

Hi! The past week has been a little hectic around here. Scott and I took a trip to San Francisco to visit my dear son Jerry and sweet DIL April. While we were there, we walked around the beautiful San Francisco Botanical Gardens and Rose Garden which are located in the Golden Gate Park. I went a little photo crazy taking LOTS of inspiration photos to add to my "to paint" library ;) Here are just a few photos from the rose garden and a couple from the Botanical Gardens:
sweet Scott :)
a few beautiful roses:

my favorite cactus in the Botanical Gardens:

Next I have a 12" x 12" painting to share that I painted for my dear friend Heather which was inspired by Gary Jenkins:
Here's a couple step shots that I took along the way:

and here are some close ups of the pink roses:

I'm linking this painting to Paint Party Friday:
Thanks so much for stopping by!

live in the moment 17

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, May 1, 2016 @ 9:00 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! It's time for a new More Than Words Challenge! This month's challenge is all about:
Word: Moment
Creative Challenge: Clocks
Here are a few close ups of my canvas:
Here's my interpretation of the challenge: 
I used the word MOMENT in the sentiment 'Live in the moment'. The creative challenge inspired me to create a steampunk style canvas featuring a variety of CLOCKS and cogs:

I'm liking this to the Paint Party Friday link up:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the More Than Words Challenge blog to see what the entire design team has created and for complete details on how to join along in the fun!

Happy May! There's a new challenge up on The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog! This month we are asking you to create a project featuring BUTTERFLIES AND BLOOMS:
Here's a trio of close-ups of my project featuring butterflies and blooms:
I created an 8" x 8" canvas project featuring a variety of wooden embellishment butterflies along with several metal flower trinkets:
To create this project basically, I adhered strips of lace, adhered the embellishments in place, applied gesso to EVERYTHING then randomly applied various colors of acrylic paints:

I'm linking my project to Paint Party Friday:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed my project! Please be sure to visit The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge site for loads of awesome inspiration from the DT and for complete details on how to share your mixed media creativity with us!
