A Different Kind of Day

Last Thursday I had hoped to use today as a splurge day instead of painting. I was going to take the day off, do something fun, go to the spa.

Keep Going

Saturday I painted 7 hours and today, Sunday, an additional 5 so I have a good start on the new painting. If you look at my Etsy site you’ll see I’ve painted many different animals, felines, primates, canines, birds and the lone elephant. I wanted to paint something totally different this time. So I decided to paint a desert tortoise. …
