I choose a photo

I draw the photo 16" x 20" canvas paper.

I paint the photo over the drawing.

I sit in my studio (which is a large closet mind you) and watch usually the same movie over and over. I am amazed my husband has not gone crazy by now with the words "Bon Appetite!" sounding in the background.

When I started this project just 4 days ago, I thought it would take me a short time to paint. I was so wrong. I still don't like it but I have to go on to the other one.
