:vs_coffee:Good Morning :vs_music:

Yesterday I bought the largest canvas I have ever worked on. It's a 24x36 inch (61x91 cm). I'm so excited about doing this. Any hints you want to lay on me about painting big will be well received. This is going to be for my living room.

So what are up to today folks?

Today I plan to paint (bet you knew that was coming.) I'm also planning to go down to the flea market and change the tags on my paintings. I bought a different brand that I like better. The flea market thing is really working out great for me. If your work is still in the expensive range I think a flea market or second hand store is the way to go. As it gets better then go to a gallery. I'm not ready for a gallery, but who knows, maybe some day. Of course some of you guys are so good you have your own Art Studio and I'm in awe when I see your work. That's what is so great about this forum. At least for me, I'm learning so much by people that truly know what they are talking about.

So good news from leigh! :D

61x91 cm? Wooooho! I'm waiting for that painting!

Hmm as for me... my whole boud hurts >.< it's end of year and I've been training harder than usual, my body can feel it u.u

I also have been thinking... I told you I need to be connected to what I'm drawing in order to get a good result. So, maybe I will try to draw my closest friends. I mean, I love them, I can take a picture and draw it with the intention of give it as a present. That may keep me motivated, I think .-.

Don't know, just an idea.

That sounds like a great idea FanKi! You can also do a portrait in remembrance of a loved one who has passed, from a photo.

Fortunately, I do not have loved ones that has passed. I've never been very close to my grandparents, I do not remember any of my uncles and that stuff so... most of the people that were close to my family and passed away were not very close to me.
Don't know if I should say I'm lucky or not, but I guess I am.

FanKi I think drawing your friends is a great idea. But definitely challenging. I can not draw a good likeness of a person, the portraits that I did were traced from photos.

I got some great news today. My Rose with the rain drops on it is going to be displayed at First Security Bank for the month of January. Wooo Hooo !
