Of course I needed some art for the walls. And until I find pieces that speak to me I put up some of my personal favorites. There seemed to be a theme.....wildflowers! Surprise, surprise. Just when I thought I was finished I found some shadowbox frames at the thrift store. They were perfect for the room and just need the right paintings.

I cut some Pastelmat scraps to 5 x 5 and pulled out some of my Ireland photos. I continued to be inspired by my summer trip and my photos were the perfect inspiration for my square paintings. I really love Pastelmat. There is something nice about the softness and the way it grabs the pastel. I think I will paint these larger!
