    I really like this! have you done more with it? it looks finished to me…It’s great to learn new things, stretching ourselves, investigating new places within ourselves, though it can be frustrating and challenging for sure when we no longer feel competent or confident!

      Lucia I just saw this comment; not sure how I missed it! It is finished now — I did some pencil work on it. It is not living up to what was in my mind’s eye but then again, not proficient with oils at all.

    Katie, your work is lovely, bright, full of energy. I’m wondering if you ever journal using art and text, and if you use watercolor and ink.

Love to hear from you....
