New Painting in the works...

I started this one last night. I have a base down, now I think I can start detailing it the way I want.
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. Like the desert. And Norther California. And then off to places like Thailand, Alaska, Ireland, New Zealand...easel and canvas in tow.

Those places are on my list of places to travel to also. Except New Zealand would be a lot further down the list. There's just lots of other places I would love to visit too.

It's lovely! I hope you post pictures as you go.
Do you paint from photos ever?

I LOVE the whole thing, but especially the fishy.
Will you post it again after you finish the detail?

And, have you ever thought of having your paintings made into notecards or postcards, to sell?

I love that painting! I'm so bad at drawing/painting etc. I am always so amazed to see other people's work.

It's looking good, can't wait to see the finished product.
