Back to painting...

...though slightly different from what I've done in the past.



I'm just finishing up this painting as I'd been wanting to paint paper lanterns for some time.  I finally got the chance, or rather, the need to do this painting finally outweighed the need to do anything else about 10 days ago and I started painting it.  Then I put down my brushes and walked away from it for over a week.

Today is Mother's Day in France so I thought what better way to celebrate it (after breakfast in bed and a lovely lunch out in Damme, Belgium with the family) than by giving myself time to paint again.

So I think I'm just about done with this one.  Inevitably, there will be a few touches here and there to finish up.  Maybe a few more lanterns in the distance for example.  But overall, I'm quite happy with the end result.  And I may have gotten paper lanterns out of my system for the time being.

I'll be listing it in my Etsy shop when I'm totally satisfied with it.
