this one is working very well, and could hang almost anywhere.

Oh yes I Agree. Reminds me of a Matisse. Rust what rust? I know the kind of work you put in on this.It takes a lot of patience and you did it well. The only thing I would like to have like to have seen different, is instead of paper, I would have prefured it on linen ,because of the longevity . But that's just me! Great Job!!!:clap: :clap: :clap:
A few moments earlier and you could have caught Raoul Dufy sitting there.

Wow, thanks for all the good words!!!
one question. I have had a lot of people suggest that i change surfaces. is watercolor paper just not a good choice for longevity?
i initially chose it for size and storing concerns. Am i wasting my time with it?

It is a matter of preference. But many artists are biased towards canvas. Just make sure the quality of the paper is the best. Plus you can always mount the paper on canvas as well. There are many choices.

I use prestretched canvas because:
1) it needs no frame (especially if you paint the edges - i like to continue paintings around the sides)
2) it hangs on a nail easily.
3) you don't need an easel to paint anywhere (I can still sit on the floor so that is suiting me personaly) as it's shape is self supportng.
4) good paper cost's about 1/2 the price of a stretched canvas. which is kind of a problem - and it is so sad when it tears by accident!.
but paper is excellent and lends itself to many media very well.
