After 1 1/2 years...

the Christmas-present canvas that my husband gave me finally became a painting. I am ashamed to admit how long it took me to commit an idea to paint form... but i won't say that i don't enjoy the empty canvas and seeing endless possibilities everyday leading up to the actual painting. there is something so promising about a blank canvas. but, i love to paint and have really enjoyed working on this one for the last few weeks. i think it turned out kind of cute. hope you enjoy.
So far it seems i can't paint anything but Russian folk women, but that's not the worst thing right? I still think of Russian babushki with a fondness and can't help it.

Jess, I love it. I can't figure out how big it is. What's the dimensions? I think Tee would love it too. I have no problem with Russian Babushkas....maybe that means they made quite the impression on your mind.....a positive experience.

I love it Jes! You are a wonder. And I miss you. I could use some of your kind of creative influence right about now. :) Weeding the garden is about as awesome as it gets though , right?

Love you!
