disappearing sun

If you have your paints out all the time..you can paint a lot. I meant to paint something bigger than this today, but an unexpected wrench got thrown into the plan. Still..because my palette almost always has paint on it, I knew I could paint something .. albeit small--this is a color study on a business card sized support.

Wow! That's small!! What size brush did you use? There's a lot of energy in this piece. Good things come in small packages.

Inspirational! There is no excuse for not painting - even if it's just for a few minutes. And look at this beauty that came from your few minutes! -Don

Hi Celeste,
you put those colors to good use, looking at it you cannot tell is a small painting. Sure sign of success!

Somewhere there is a dollhouse mantelpiece for this...It is delightful that you set aside this "canvas" and the time to paint it.

I love how you made lemonade with the lemons you were given. I need to follow your example.
