I'm not going to say anything . . .

- in fear that I might jinx myself! But here is painting 3 - again, I'm not going to say it is my 3rd painting for the 3rd day in a row! Especially since you can easily look back and see that . . . . . , so really there is no need to say it and mess up the rhythm! Ya' know?!


This is an 8x10 with a box frame! From now on if you order this size, it will be the 1 1/2 inch box canvas. UNLESS it is from the classic collection - those will be the thinner - but gallery wrapped - canvases. Since that specific collection is made to frame, I need to continue painting them on the thinner boxes. It would be difficult {if not impossible} to frame the wider canvas.

Okay, I'm going to keep this short because I'm trying to keep up with this pace . . . .


Another sneaky peeky - maybe you can see it tomorrow! Can I just tell you that I love this new lens!!!! And I don't even know how to use it!! And I'm still getting some crazy-great pictures!!! It makes these peekies even better!

btw - someone asked me how long it takes to paint the 5x5's - it really depends on the design - anywhere from 45 minutes to 3 hours.

What is special about the lens? What does it do besides let us all have sneaky peeks?

I see something that looks familiar! I am anxious for the full view!

i've been following your blog for awhile now, i love your paintings!! i love to paint too, but i am NOTHING compared to how good you are! i wanted to ask you...do you use acryllic paint? and what kind do you use? when i paint on canvas i find it's hard to get my colors on there properly, meaning...i have to do TONS of coats of something sometimes. i use the cheaper paints tho...that's probably why! Anyways, you're great, just wanted to let you know!!!!

Hi. I just stumbled onto your blog from Temporary Insanity. And I love your painting. I also paint...oils and acrylics. Water colors and I have agreed to disagree. So, I'm looking forward to exploring your place here.

Love your artwork !
I hope you don't mind me asking ...
But where do you buy your canvases? I have been ordering from Dick Blick but thought maybe there was a better source.
I use to pick up my paints at HL but lately their color selection hasn't been that great. Do you have a favorite?
Thanks!
Sherry

I love it! And I love my lapto also. We got it at costco- its an HP. Did I mention I LOVE it? It goes on the road with us when we are gone overnight or whatnot, but I am sure when I have to do more outings with my kiddos I will be toting it along then too!
Blessings!
