Here’s another cool design for the boys. I can’t remember where I got the idea for this one. It’s an awfully cute little rocket, though! Save
This heart design is so simple even a beginner can do it!
Another butterfly! I think I got the inspiration for this one from real life. Can’t quite remember. Save

I painted this design quite awhile ago for a contest. It’s my take on Spider-Man 2099. My husband knows all bout Spider-Man; I do not. If you encounter a huge Spidey fan while painting, they might appreciate this design. Save
