For lunch I had a simple turkey sandwich:

And I had it with a side of cherry tomatoes and a small to-go container of Blackberry Greek Yogi
ohhh so guess where I just came back from?! RAW CANVAS! My painting is pretttttttty much done. I didn’t think I would get so much done! I kind of wish I went a little slower, I still have 4 days left to complete it. I have a funny feeling that I migggght just buy another canvas and create a new masterpiece! I am learning a lot! And as I practice everyday, I get better and better. I don’t want to stop! Art makes me happy!
There was some more incredible talent tonight. Check it out…
I didn’t know what to do with the background. I knew I did not want to use a dark colour, because I was afraid the background would over power the figure.
I tired this light textured look with a spatula. I don’t know if I love it, but everyone else there seemed to like it…but then again…I doubt anyone would say anything bad to my face.
