Handmade Gifts

Da Goddess @ 04:06

Since I was flat broke this year, I had to make my gifts. The following are what I gave to family.

Dad's horse

J and J horse

C and D peacock

Mom's peacock

You may recognize these images from photos I’ve posted here. Yep, that’s where the inspiration came from!

Going from photography to painting (with watercolor pencils, tentatively at first, and then using a wet brush to finish the job) was a big jump for me. I was nervous as hell, but I’m happy with what I accomplished. I’m also feeling braver and will tackle more of these projects in the future. It’s kind of exciting! It’s like I gave a gift to myself in the process of creating presents for others. Woo hoo!
