What I'm Painting: Walls and Watercolors

This past week I've been occupied with the oh-so-fun task of painting the living room. My goal was to get it done by Memorial Day, and it looks like I might get it done with a few days to spare. 

Progress has been slightly hindered the high ceiling on half of the room, but I borrowed my mom's ladder so I should be good to go from now on.

And as great as the crisp white walls look, it will be nice to have my paintings back up!

 My kiddos paint with watercolors everyday and I've been feeling a little jealous since all of naptime/maketime has been devoted to wall painting for over a week now.  
I started painting shapes that I have been drawing for awhile and then starting to play a bit more.

The design on the bottom middle seemed sort of botanical so I tried it out in warm colors.

And then I just had sort of a doodle page. Who says sketches have to "be" something!
