Happy Easter! I painted this Song Thrush egg from Anna Mason School. The egg is an ancient symbol of New Life. It is also said to represent Jesus' emergence from the tomb and Resurrection. Thought painting this egg was apropos for today.
Update: It always makes me feel good when Anna Mason chooses one of my paintings to mention in the school weekly newsletter. This egg got a mention this week. 😊

Sometimes I look at a painting for so long, I feel like I need to make adjustments. I made some tonal adjustments to this daffodil this morning and I think it looks more like the center of the flower is giving off of 3d effect. I'm hoping you think so too.

Is there a better way to practice social distancing than working on some watercolors? I think not. I have several paintings in the works right now. This tulip is among them. 😁

I retired from Loudoun County Public Schools in October 2018. I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of creating art. I began drawing and painting at an early age and sold my first painting at the age of 15. While in high school, I won several awards for “Outstanding Achievement in Art”, participated in a Virginia Tech Art Shows with Honorable Mentions, displayed paintings at the Roanoke Fine Arts Center and won Best in Show for a pen and ink drawing.

There was a very long period where I dabbled in drawing and painting. I painted quite a few murals during my summers off from school. That’s when I first started posting on Facebook and gave my business the name Custom Mural Designs. Unfortunately, Facebook will not allow me to change the name of my business or start a new page. They reviewed my request but I was denied a change. I appealed with no luck.

For years, my job was taking care of my family. When my children started school, I began a career as a substitute teacher. I finished my degree in Early Childhood Education and started working as a teacher assistant. I worked in the school system for 24 years.

Now I am living my dreams! I hope you enjoy my paintings. If you wish to purchase anything, I accept PayPal: PayPal.Me/tmtipton To see my FB page and share with others: fb.me/ttiptonart

Thank you for taking the time to take a look!
