Ahhhh yes! My old friend paint. I love painting almost more than anything else. There is something so gratifying about a completely blank surface, and turning it into something beautiful. This is just the first layer of many. It is hard for me to justify painting at this point in my life. Sometimes I can finish a painting this size in just a few days. Other times it takes me weeks. Our home is small, we are remodeling and I have three little ones that need a lot of attention. Sometimes I just have to paint in spite of it all. This is one of those times. I will keep you all posted on the progress of this piece. I am a little rusty......so be patient.
