Painting in a room full of people is a daunting task, especially when you bring your critic with you. After learning how miserable it is to have a mean spirited critic sitting on your shoulder at my last painting class, I firmly instructed my critic to remain outside. In the rain. However, my easel ended up being right next to the window (and the sugary treats that another student brought in) so I did catch glimpses of my critic looking quite pitiful outside. In the rain. She wasn't allowed inside the entire evening and it felt much better that way. This is my angel painting that I haven't worked on in two weeks. She's made a little progress this evening but there are many more layers to go before I can actually call her an angel.
On another note:
The FedEx truck stopped by today with a large box of samples of my canvas prints that are in Target right now. The second order has arrived at the stores and rumor has it, they are still flying off the shelves. Yipee! I'll be having a little Give-Away soon for one of these. . .
I am so grateful for a lovely walk through the hidden parts of Balboa Park today with a good friend.
