Which is unfair, I haven't owned a recliner in years.

Bill. With internet you don't need to go anywhere to see the world. I'm a stay at home type too. There's so much to do at home, I rarely feel the need to go anywhere.

That's pretty cool, Virginia, although I would be a liar if I said I wouldn't like to see more ponies

I added some background to my water mage, I also was able to take a picture with a proper camera

Virginia - I like your idea of the exploding cauldron The colors are great very "explosive". I think this could be finished...but I understand if you are frustrated, I have a bunch of half finished things...that I think I'm going to finish someday.
Vanity- I like the additional background stuff, really like the purples and deep blues. Also a good camera makes a difference, very nice.

@Dianna, Attalus, Michelle thank you I am now considering making the white areas of the background blue. Do you think I should do it ? Or leave them as they are now ?

If you do, vanity, make it a very pale blue. Just my 2cents, ignore at will I would make it a warm turquoise, meself, drawing the foreground toward the viewer

That was my initial thought I will probably revisit this piece later lest it ends up in a place many other works I tried to improve did...

Vanity I like the contrast with the white and the blue, I think it gives it more pop!

Hi back home now and finished three days of work...I finally had time to mow my front yard, it was starting to look like jungle/vacant lot or maybe like someone was on vacation!

Only a few more days till the new challenge....I hope you like it!
