Love the hands, Vicki. Mine are starting to look like hers more and more. I love the slide shows. It's great to see your process.

I LOVE your painting this month ... absolutely wonderful detail and interest.

I actually considered a very similar idea, as sometimes happens... but then settled on my final plan, very different from yours. It is a lot of fun to see how our minds go in the same grooves month to month in the group... or not.

Thanks, Mark! I got in the habit of taking photos throughout the painting when I first started painting seriously a couple years ago. Thought process was it would help me figure out what went right and wrong. Turned out to be a teaching tool for others...Diana, thanks so much! I have to watch myself when I slip off into realism. Don't want to get stuck there!
