Today I worked on the new challenge for 'Different Strokes from Different Folks'. Karin challenged everyone to go a little outside their comfort zone. I did so by painting this piece a lot larger than I normally paint. This is 16" x 20" versus my usual 5"x 5" or so. I used a one inch brush in an effort to keep things loose. I also worked on a smooth board that I don't care for. I really like the Ampersand boards with a texture to them. Having said all that... here it is.
And now I will be in NYC for the weekend to visit my daughter... A FABULOUS early Christmas present from my darling husband! I am hoping to come back with lots of reference photos that will keep me painting through spring. :) Have a great weekend!

Sally, you do some very nice work, I'm going to keep looking for it. I wish though that when we click on your pictures that they'd enlarge so we can see and enjoy the brushwork in detail.

Actually that is something I'd like to figure out how to do!! I will make that a goal for this week... I will try to pick my graphic designer friends' brain! Thank you for the nice comments!!
