You sure have talent! My favorite one, is the pencil holder. Do you take lessons? Do you use water color or oil?

God Bless,
Lois

Hi Lois,

No, I do not take lessons. My grandma paints really good so she showed me how to do a few techniques but that was all. I don't use water color or oil. I am not quite sure what kind I use. The painting is called Toll Painting.

Thanks for the comment!!

Lovely paintings! I like the snowmen and the pencil holder. Did you also draw the snowmen, or just painted them?

Hello Carissa,

I'm Rebekah, sister of Lois and all the other girls :)
I especially like the painting with the snowmen! They remind me of a stuffed snowman I had when I was little and I really "loved".
I kept that snowman for several years until one day I gave it away when it got ruined. I liked it better than a teddy bear! It was so soft and cuddly.

I like drawing a lot...I don't have much experience with painting. Keep up the work- you might even be able to start a small business on etsy! Just a thought :)

Hi Abigail,

I did not draw the snowmen. I traced them from a painting book that I have.

Hello Rebekah,

Thanks for the comment, Rebekah! I don't know how to draw that good. I have drawn a few things such as a sidewinder snake, a bird, a vine snake and a shark.

Your painting projects always turn out so nice, Carissa! Thank you for sharing these photos. I'm glad you enjoy painting--keep on practicing and you'll get even better and better at it :) I think the snowman project you did is one of my favorites. Very cute. You're doing a nice job blogging!
Love,
AMy

I like your blog button! Did you or one of your sisters take the picture?
The movie with William Carey is called: Candle in the Dark. It’s not the best quality though.

Hi Abigail,

Amy took the picture and she set up the blog button for me.

Thanks for telling me the name of the film. I think it would be really interesting to watch.

You are so talented, Carissa! I love these works of art that you have made! Especially the pencil holder. :)

Too bad you don't live closer as maybe then I could take lessons from you. :) I am so un-artistic, and can do hardly anything with a paintbrush in my hand!
