Gorgeous day!

I thought I'd share my fourth acrylic painting with you today. I did a still life I painted over, a snow scene I still have but am not happy with, a landscape I painted over, then this painting.

I have to say I love everything about it, well maybe it's too shinny a finish but the rest I love. I've been drawn to the Northern Lights ever since I first saw them in Quesnel years ago. In fact a Alaska trip is in my "too do" book just to see them closer.

I also thought I should take a better picture of my wind chimes, pretty aren't they? There's a wonderful bone, or shell hanging off the bottom that makes the most soothing noise.

I made some window hangers I've been wanting to do for a while. The idea is not mine, it's Diane Woodalls' niece but she hasn't had any in her shop for ages so I tried it. Very fiddly, and not as nice as hers but I'm pretty happy with them.

And last but by no means least a new spinner ring. I'm really enjoying making these. I have one in the tumbler I'll do a happy dance over if it turns out!
