fourth painting EVER

it all started with a key
a key to a real castle
a castle in Scotland
a friend gave it to my 10yo son
he LOVES castles
inspiration hit one day and I started painting the key
over and over

on a large canvas
it sat on the table for a long time
before anything else happened

then this happened

and this

then this
my 10 yo would like this painting to hang in his
new rearranged castle bedroom

thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh that is so cute! You are so talented. I wish I could paint like that. I'm afraid if I tried it would be a muddy mess!

  2. That's amazing, Kolein! When you go big... remember me :) You can add "Artist" to your repertoire! Love the all the detail and the keys look like they could leap right off the painting!

    {hugs} to you!


  3. Love the use of colors in that painting, and the visual idea is fabulous. Keep at it girl. You're making great things.

  4. That's totally awesome. I am so proud of you. Can't wait to see more of these coming our way.

    I love old keys.

  5. Very cute! The door makes you want to open it to see if there is some sort of magical world behind it! :)

  6. Hi Kolein! Thanks for popping by to say hello! I'm happy to say that all is well and I'm back at it again. Looking forward to catching up on your blog. LOVE those keys; the colors are yummy!

  7. How magical is that! It's almost as good as the frog you kissed that turned into a prince. :)

  8. That is spectacular Kolein!!!!I love the colors and the patterns, but the door is superb!

  9. Kolein! I love it.
    You did a great job on this painting.
    When I stare at it I think about art, really!
    You know like in a museum. I keep thinking about this painting--- just once I'd like to get inside your mind,girl!
    This painting is perfect.

  10. So lovely Kolein! Straight out of a fairy tale! I love that your son wants to hang it in his room :)

  11. Very nice! I'm super impressed with your painting. Sorry it took me so long to get over and catch up, I'm spending my day visiting with my blog friends. I've been so out of it this past week, with all my preparations for the party. It's so nice to be able to visit with everyone else!
