The challenge for Creative Every Day is "New."  Acrylic painting is new for me, at least in the sense that I haven't completed a full scale painting before.  So I decided to start with a simple little decorative thing (18x24) for my new granddaughter, whose room is outfitted in lavender and purple gingham with green accents.  I hope her parents like it : )

After that we have the two latest sketches from my sketchbook project, "The Writing on the Wall".  I'm trying to do a little something each day and am very inspired to do so in spite of being otherwise busy.  Thanks so much to all of you who stop by and leave your great suggestions and encouraging remarks!

I can see that the colors aren't as rich on this as on the original.  The blue is actually very striking in the sketchbook, as it is in real life.
