A new painting in progress...


I started this one on Saturday night. I have a base down, now I think I can start detailing it the way I want. I have today off, so I'll spend some time with it again.
I wish I could spend every day with paint and canvas. Practice makes perfect, not that I'd ever be perfect at it, but at least better...
My "If I win the lottery" wish is to travel and paint. I want to go to all the beautiful places I've never been or have been but didn't have the time/opportunity/supplies to paint while there.

Came by to say thanks for your kind words on my guest post over at Tracie's (and for coming to visit).

Love the painting, and I deeply empathize with the frustration you must feel that you can't paint as much as you want (only for me, it's writing, of course).

Jeanne thanks for coming by, and thanks for the sweet words...please stop by anytime!

Ben ah....that dream. Italy sounds like a great jumping off place, I think the very first place I would head to would boil down to a coin toss between New Zealand and Thailand.
I can't wait to see your flowers!
