A little bit of Painting

My weekend has been filled with lots of this.

In this stage of my life, I have a lot of time on my hands... sometimes I think a little too much, but I'm taking full advantage of all the time I get. I know it won't always be like this :) 

Anyways... I've decided to take up painting. Ha... we'll see how long this lasts. But I'm really liking it. I spent hours and hours painting this weekend. It's just so fun and relaxing! I've learned something about myself- I really love to create. There's something so incredible about being the artist and making something that is yours. 

Here's some random ones I've done: 
Can you tell what's on my mind? I'm craving cozy, chilly weather :) 
Obviously, I'm a newbie but I'm having fun learning! 

Today.... I'm thankful for the God-given ability to CREATE 

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend! 


  1. I'm seriously impressed...and slightly jealous you inherited the more "creative" gene in the Ross family ;)

  2. You're good for being a beginner!

  3. Those are lovely pictures! You have a talent, my friend :] And I love that we, as created beings, have the urge to create as well. Keep painting, Beth!

  4. These are great and I'm so impressed! I can't even draw stick people.

  5. amazing .. i never knew you painted! you're incredibly talented!

  6. You're very talented!

    I did art A Level (not sure what your equivalent is in the US, the exams you do when you're 17/18 anyway!) and loved it but haven't done much since then.

    I'm hoping to have an art corner in the spare bedroom of our new house!

  7. Bethany, these look great! Good job! I want to paint some abstracty-type art for our place, but since it's just temporary I haven't really been too inspired to try it out.

  8. Looks great! It's been forever since I painted last. Just not enough time =(

  9. How fun! I have been wanting to start up painting again too. It is very relaxing to me.

  10. wow, that's amazing that you are a newbie---these are so beautiful! thanks for entering my giveaway because I'm the one who is blessed by finding your sweet blog. I can't wait to catch up on your life and get to know you better, friend!
