My progress so far.  I painted yesterday morning for a few hours
and will work on it again this afternoon.  I'm very happy with the reds:
alizarin crimson, carmine & ruby red. 
I've added a bit of ultramarine for depth and shadow.

We've just had our best month ever on Etsy!  Who-hoo!

beginning a new one

I'm beginning a new painting of parrot tulips
that will hopefully be my Christmas card this year.

Last year, I was right up to the wire getting my painting finished
and off to the printer in time.  I painted the swan in a two day panic!

I was very happy with the painting, but not the stress!

I promised myself this year that I would start in August

and so I have.
