a double ta-dah.


Thought I'd post my two most recent paintings here today, vastly different from one another as they are.  The first one is a scene from our Beach House, on the southern shore of Lake Superior, which we rent out as a vacation rental.  I think this painting fits nicely with the "Being Creative" July theme of "Summer".

My most recent painting, finished this week, is a departure from my usual style, inspired by a fun ballpoint pen & crayon doodle our 14-year-old (extremely creative) daughter did a couple of weeks ago.  Last week, I just felt like doing something cheerful, so this is what I came up with.  The Bible verse is special to my husband and me, and I had the reference engraved inside his wedding band before we got married.  I'm contemplating doing some more paintings in this sort of style, just for something fun and different.

In art business-related news, I recently received my business license and transaction privilege license from the state of Arizona.  So now "ART by Amelia Kay" is an official business and I am allowed to charge sales tax... which is required if I sell art in Arizona.  Which I do intend to do. :)
