Friends

One of those days that I knew it would be interesting to see a
beginning.
The canvas already had the background color.
Sure enough, it was meant to be covered.

I have been on a bit of a painting strike. We just didn't want to paint.
It was a good feeling.
To paint.
And to get a bit of paper napkin therapy.
Today.
Sharon

  7. I love this piece Sharon! I am having a bit of painting withdrawal and I think a little paper napkin therapy is in order.

  9. Lovely - and thankyou so much for showing the stages of your painting. I must try incorporating napkins into a painting (I'm not a painter) - this week I've been making napkin eggs.

  10. How do you know when to stop? It is so lovely at every step. Which part is the paper napkin? The butterfly, the flowers or both? So interesting to see this come together!
