I'm working on a commission for a series of garden paintings, based on some photos I was given. The sketches are 5X7, half the size the final versions will be. They're all being done on one sheet for now and I've finished the first two. Then tonight, we had a small visitor who, in addition to watching The Wizard of Oz for the zillionth time (she even has the witch's lines down), was curious about my painting. So, we sat down and got out my drawing pad. She obviously took to it like a pro! When her parents came back from dinner, Amara had two paintings to take home... cuz, "there's no place like home, there's no place like home..."
