I picked up my blank canvas at the store last week, as well an assortment of other goodies I decided I had to have - some textured rice papers, a delicious red TomBow pen. Then I thought about what I might paint for the project.
I finally settled on doing a small version of what I've been doing all winter, which is adhering wallpaper to canvas and then painting people based on vintage photographs I find in second hand stores.

Now they just need to dry well and then they can be varnished and sent off. Maybe they will bring a smile to their new owner.
