Sunday shelf

Welcome to my Sunday shelf. I have a shelf in my home which holds books, framed photos and a variety of objects. This is a small landscape that I painted in acrylic several years ago on louan mahagony panel. It has been on my shelf and never framed.

I look forward to visiting this island again, and painting a small collection for my shelf. Carrying these thin panels and just a paint box of acrylics is easy and carefree. Try it on your next trip.

What is on your Sunday shelf?

Painting is on my list of things i want to do in my life. i see it and i feel something in my soul! i think "i need to paint!" it's in me...and when a get a chance someday i will start. i know i will.
i told my husband that and he looked atme and said "really? that's what you think when you see a painting? then it must be because i NEVER have thought that once in my life." that was encouraging actually.
this is so pretty.
i am so glad that you DO paint. :)

I feel relaxed just thinking of painting on vacation. Many a conversation has happened with curious passer by's!

Where is Block Island- Georgia? We spent our honeymoon on Amelia Island and Fernandia Beach.

I love the idea of rotating items like these...thanks.

I love the beautiful and inviting painting. I would enjoy sitting in a corner watching you paint.
Well it isn't a shelf but on the wall is a photo of my dad's hands that I look at every day.

Have a golden Sunday! xoxo

I really need to get out photos from some of my trips for inspiration. This painting is so lush, it does make you want to go and visit.

I think being a painter is up there with being a really great writer. A talent I would love to have but I wasn't given all the creative talents just the interior design one :) Love that painting. I like the idea of a Sunday Shelf, I don't have enough shelving in my home to have one though.

What a dreamy painting! And I love how you've displayed it on your shelf, unframed - it looks perfect.

I should have had Ben-Gay on my Sunday shelf this week. :-)

Love that little painting you've done! I would fill all of my shelves with mini paintings if I could.
