Ha..I already knew that!!! I have a 6x20 inch canvas leftover that I painted in acrylics about 4 years ago and it fits wonderfully in an 8 inch corner spot between two doors! Where's yours going???

this is really nice...except for the end of her nose, looks a little smooshed! You really have a nice touch with clothes...and nice complements going on here!

Hey Sue,

Thanks - I know about the nose - I fixed it fortunately but will probably give the dear gal a bit more surgery there before I'm through and happy with hit.

Aha - where will it go??? Good question.... in the closet in the pile I imagine. Unfortunately!!!

Don't you frame and hang any of your stuff??? And are you sure you're licensed to practice surgery??? SNORK!!!:p

I like her, I like how the clothing came out. the colors are vibrant. I don't hang my work up either, they go in a special place to keep them safe, three kids in house.:cat:

Good use of paper Barb and very nice too , Guess I'm silly, mine usually end up as colour practice scraps.

I'm saving my scraps for my students! :) You know how difficult it is to get newbies to tear up paper for practice pieces!
