If can make it there, I'll make it anywhere.....:music: :music: :music: Now NY NY is stuck in my head!
Just a start here on a canvasboard that I had DH cut down to 10" X 14" from a 11X14, just to fit a frame I have laying around in need of a painting.:D One of those great garage sale finds that are not a standard size. I traced the major lines for placement (forgot to mention this last weekend with the Hibiscus - I used a tracing paper and then painted). So here is my start in acrylics:

Sorry for the blur - tried to clean it up in Adobe, but what can you do with a flash photo taken in the evening inside?!? Well, I do have high hopes here and see lots of errors, but it is early on and I fix it up - need some time though. This weekend seems to be flying by and I am only halfway through my chore list. I will try to get back later today, but might not be till Weds. night. I think this was maybe any hour? I always lose track of time when I am painting.:wave:
